An integrated undergraduate-graduate (IUG) degree program combines a Penn State baccalaureate degree with a master’s degree as a continuous program of study. Integrated undergraduate-graduate students have the ability to pursue a coherent plan of study through the master’s degree, reduce the total time to completion for the master’s degree, work with the Graduate School faculty, and utilize the Graduate School resources. IUG degree programs are pursued by a small percentage of currently enrolled academically superior Penn State undergraduate students. Interested students may not be admitted to an integrated undergraduate-graduate degree program prior to their third semester of undergraduate study at Penn State (regardless of any accumulated AP credits earned prior to enrollment).

Students interested in learning more about any of the IUG programs below should speak with their undergraduate academic adviser before submitting an application to the Graduate School.
