In the College of LSA, your education is about more than searching for answers in a textbook. There are real-world problems out there that need solving, and creative minds like yours—working with the best and brightest faculty—have the potential to impact the world.
To that end, numerous programs in the College foster hands-on work, innovative thinking, and experiences that challenge and transform.
COMPREHENSIVE STUDIES PROGRAM
Students in CSP's Summer Bridge Scholars Program have an excellent opportunity to strengthen their academic skills, build a professional support network, and familiarize themselves with the campus and its resources.
Changing the world means actually experiencing it. The LSA Opportunity Hub helps students explore their interests outside the classroom.
Entrepreneurship with a social impact. OptiMize supports student innovators building projects they are passionate about, whether that means design solutions for differently-abled people, a community farm growing 50,000 lbs of fresh produce in Detroit, or the first-ever “open world” virtual reality game for mobile.
LSA students push boundaries—and literally cross them. LSA offers 99 global study programs covering 6 continents.
UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM (UROP)
More than 1,300 first- and second-year students and 800 faculty engage in dynamic research partnerships to foster inquisitive and independent real-world learning.
MICHIGAN LEARNING COMMUNITIES (MLCs)
MLC programs are small, scholarly, and diverse communities that link intellectual ideas and shared interests between students and faculty.
MICHIGAN IN WASHINGTON
Each year, 45–50 University of Michigan undergraduates from all majors spend a semester in Washington, D.C., combining coursework with an internship to earn a full semester of credits.
SEMESTER IN DETROIT (SiD)
Combining a semester-long residence in the city with rigorous academic study and a comprehensive community-based internship, SiD students become deeply involved in—and committed to—the life, challenges, and promise of this important American city.
