Integrated Graduate Studies

The Integrated Graduate Studies Program (IGS) is intended for highly motivated CWRU undergraduate students who are candidates for the bachelor of arts (BA) and whose objective is a Master’s in Bioethics & Medical Humanities. Qualified students may be admitted to graduate study for their senior year and pursue the simultaneous completion of requirements for both the master’s and bachelor’s degrees. The baccalaureate will normally be awarded upon completion of the requirements for both degrees. *Courses taken before formal admission into the IGS program cannot be double-counted.

Required Materials for a Completed Application:

  • Official transcripts of all previous undergraduate and graduate courses
  • CV/Resume
  • Personal statement
  • PPOS (signed by Dean Dilulio)
  • Three letters of recommendation including one former professor

IGS applicants are not required to submit a test score. The application fee is automatically waived. 

Before submitting an application, undergraduate students must meet with Dean Nancy Dilulio in the CWRU School of Undergraduate Studies to ensure they have met all undergraduate requirements. 

Undergraduate students can obtain a Bioethics and Medical Humanities PPOS form from Graduate Program Coordinator, Marie Norris, MNO

Upon admission to the program, IGS students register as students in the School of Graduate Studies and are subject to the policies, rules, and regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. They may, however, continue to receive merit-based undergraduate scholarships and may continue to reside in undergraduate housing during what would normally be their senior year of undergraduate work. Additionally, students in the IGS program will pay Graduate Tuition Rates.
