Graduate Pathway Options

John Brown University undergraduate students may begin work on a graduate degree after reaching junior status (60 completed hours) by declaring a Graduate Pathway. Once students declare a Graduate Pathway, their academic plan will reflect the courses required, and they will be assigned a graduate advisor in addition to their undergraduate advisor. Additional information can be viewed under Academic Policies-Graduate Pathway.

A graduate pathway in design thinking and innovation provides students with 12 credit hours of graduate course work, which may be applied toward the JBU M.S. in Design Thinking & Innovation degree program at the completion of their undergraduate degree.

For the design thinking and innovation pathway option, a minimum grade of ‘C/2.0’ or better is required in each course.
