Integrated Graduate Studies

(BA/MA or BA/MS)

The Integrated Graduate Studies Program (IGS) is intended for highly motivated undergraduate students who are candidates for the BA and whose objective is a degree at the master's or doctorate level. By more closely integrating undergraduate and graduate studies, 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 a year of graduate study and attainment of a total of 120 semester hours of credit.
