Theme Semester

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.

Winter 2020: Great Lakes Theme Semester: Lake Effects

LSA’s research takes place all around the world, but important learning and discovery also happens close to home. The Great Lakes Theme Semester offers opportunities for students, faculty, and the public to join conversations about issues both critical to our region and relevant to national and international contexts.

Through courses, films, panels, exhibits, field trips, and other events, "Lake Effects" will encourage interdisciplinary exploration of how the environmental, political, and social issues facing our region have long been shaped by the Great Lakes, and how human activities continue to impact them in turn.
