The College of LSA equips its students to tackle tough problems and impact the world for the better, featuring numerous programs that foster hands-on learning, innovative thinking, and experiences that challenge and transform.
COMPREHENSIVE STUDIES PROGRAM (CSP)
Students in CSP's Summer Bridge Program have an excellent opportunity to strengthen their academic skills, build a professional support network, and familiarize themselves with the campus and its resources.
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 OPPORTUNITIES 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 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.
