Prospective Students

Semester in Detroit seeks to provide opportunities for ALL students at the University of Michigan to engage with and learn from Detroit and its communities. In order to do this we offer 3 different options for students looking to be involved with our program.

1. Take a class.

Students can enroll in one of our Detroit electives while still living + taking classes in Ann Arbor.

2. Spend a Semester in Detroit.

This is our most immersive option for the student wanting a long-term living and learning experience in Detroit.

3. Continue your engagement.

Students who have done the Semester in Detroit program (or other similar programs) are eligible to continue their engagement by proposing a project with a community organization and UM faculty member.
