In LSA, we teach you how to ask the right questions—how to think, not what to think.
In LSA, we recruit the curious. Bright minds on the frontlines of research and in the classroom traverse topics from art history to molecular biology. LSA’s deep resources help create an environment in which thriving isn’t the exception, it’s the rule.
Every moment on campus is one where discovery, innovation, and breakthroughs are being pursued. Moments lead to minutes, minutes lead to hours, and hours add up to become 200 years of history. That’s how long LSA has been the bedrock of undergraduate education at the University of Michigan.
But not even a prestigious past should define our future. Victors achieve—present tense. Read on to learn how.
With almost 2,000 courses in 75 departments, you can learn from a range of faculty experts. A 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures individualized attention.
These small courses are limited to 18 students to give incoming students an opportunity to engage faculty on a more personal basis.
Changing the world means actually experiencing it. The LSA Opportunity Hub helps students explore their interests outside the classroom.
Students in LSA have a wealth of facilities available to explore every avenue of inquiry—from libraries to computer centers to state-of-the-art labs and more.
