The fact is that Case Western Reserve University students graduate ready to immediately add value to their workplaces, thanks to our emphasis on interdisciplinary education, real-world experience and leadership skills.

Take, for example, rising senior Ingrid Gillies (pictured here). 


Fact: At Case Western Reserve, students are admitted to the university as a whole, and can major in any field they wish, without any barriers.
