Imagine the U-M community collectively exploring ideas around a common theme. Water, for example. Or the universe. Or language.
Theme Semesters provide exactly this opportunity. Anchored in the College of LSA, Theme Semesters provide intellectual and cultural immersion in a particular topic across U-M. Students combine coursework with lectures, museum exhibits, music or theater performances, film series, and more.
This exploration doesn’t just stay inside the academy, either. Theme Semester events are generally open to the public and are done frequently in collaboration with community organizations.
Theme Semesters have been an integral part of the teaching and learning experience on campus for more than two decades, connecting the great intellectual and cultural strengths of the University of Michigan to the issues defining our world today.
