Undergraduate

The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (or LSA for short) is the largest college at U-M, offering more majors, more flexibility, and more possibilities when you graduate. Here’s more of what makes us different.

LSA is part of a large, top-ranked research university with distinguished faculty, amazing facilities and resources, Football Saturdays at the Big House, and an engaged alumni network.

Small class sizes, first-year seminars, Michigan Learning Communities (such as the Honors Program, Comprehensive Studies Program, and Residential College), and clubs and organizations make a large campus feel small. Translation: You will make friends!

Our liberal arts curriculum offers the flexibility to change your mind and the freedom to change course. Dive into your major and explore a broad range of subjects and topics, from social justice to neuroscience to conservation. Take a Theme Semester course. What you wonder about, and pursue, is completely up to you.

Some of the best lessons happen outside the classroom. LSA students study across six continents, intern around the world, and work on research projects with faculty.

LSA students have interned: 
Mayo Clinic
Comedy Central
Qualtrics
United Airlines
Guggenheim Venice
U.S. Department of State
And more!

Your next steps are big steps. We feel you, and we’re here for you. From academic support to academic advising to services to maintain your emotional, physical, and intellectual wellness, LSA offers robust resources to make sure you make the most of your college experience.

From your first day on campus, you’ll have access to the LSA Opportunity Hub, a transformative career exploration center that connects LSA students with internship and job opportunities, employers, and LSA's extensive network of alums.

Anywhere you want! LSA graduates launch tech careers; enter the business world; create remarkable art; teach; attend medical, law, or graduate school; engage in public service; and much more. This interactive career wheel shows various paths you might take after college based on graduate data.

We want to talk to you and learn about what you’re interested in studying! Join current students and Frances, our Recruiting Coordinator, for a virtual Q&A session. You may also reach out via email to lsarecruit@umich.edu or click on the link below to reserve your seat at the next session.
