Case Western Reserve University offers nearly 100 academic programs, spanning the arts, business, engineering, humanities, math, natural sciences, nursing, pre-medicine and social sciences. And because CWRU students are admitted to the university, rather than a particular school or college, they have the flexibility to take courses and pick up majors and minors in the areas that most interest them, without any barriers to entry.

As our new students settle into their first semester on campus, what classes are some of their favorites? 

  • BioDesign Basics: The Art of Finding Patient Needs
  • Biology in Translation: From the Lab to Our Lives
  • Cities (Under Construction)
  • Movers and Shakers: Leadership
  • The Past and Future of Art, Architecture and Museums in Cleveland
  • Reading Social Justice: The Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards
  • SAVOR: The Ethics and Politics of Eating
  • Two Cultures?: The Relationship between the Sciences and the Humanities
  • Urban Ecology
  • Using Human-centered Design to Address Needs
  • ...and hundreds more.
