Enhance your degree

Want to enhance your degree while making yourself more marketable, meeting new people, and preparing for a global society.  Consider the following opportunities. 

Study abroad

Studying abroad can open you up to a world of experiences and opportunities that exist beyond the classroom.  Whether you are interested in a cultural experience that will reframe the way you see the world, improving skills that will help you get a job, or simply earning credits toward your degree outside of a campus classroom--you can find a program that will fit your needs while engaging with new people, local cultures, and new ideas.

Irvin D. Reid Honors College 

Through a program that is both academically rigorous and culturally engaged, the Irvin D. Reid Honors College prepares Wayne State's highest-achieving students to be leaders in the local community and the world beyond.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) 

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) invites students from disciplines across the university – hard sciences, social sciences, performing arts and humanities – to participate in undergraduate research. Undergraduate research puts theory into practice as you work on projects and are mentored by full-time faculty who are leaders in their field. 

Accelerated Graduate Enrollment (AGRADE) 

Several Colleges have established an accelerated combined undergraduate and graduate program (AGRADE) in which highly qualified seniors in the college may enroll simultaneously in some undergraduate and graduate programs of the College. A maximum of sixteen credits may be applied towards both undergraduate and graduate degrees in a student's major field if that program is an AGRADE participant. Those who elect the AGRADE program may expect to complete the Bachelor's and Master's degrees in five years of full-time study. AGRADE may not be used in conjunction with Senior Rule. Check with your major advisor for more information.
