Undergraduate-to-Graduate (U2G) degree options
This is a universal Undergraduate-to-Graduate (U2G). It is open to students in all undergraduate majors at the University of Iowa.
Combined-degree options allow students to earn a graduate degree in planning and another degree in less time than would be required to obtain the two degrees independently. Courses for one degree are considered as elective credit for the other degree program.
