CWRU offers the option of an Integrated Graduate Studies Program (IGS) for highly motivated undergraduate students who are candidates for the bachelor of arts (BA) and whose objective is a degree at the master’s or doctoral level.

The Public Health program offers an IGS option, making it possible for undergraduates to join our program for their senior year and pursue the simultaneous completion of requirements for both the master’s and bachelor’s degrees.

CWRU normally awards the baccalaureate upon completion of the requirements for both degrees, unless a student satisfies all BA requirements prior to completing the master’s degree requirements.

Please note that courses taken before formal admission into the IGS program cannot be double counted. 

The curriculum for the Master’s degree requirements are the same as those for the MPH program, which has five concentrations.
