Miami University, an original Public Ivy, provides a rigorous academic experience in the quintessential college town of Oxford, Ohio. Founded in 1809, the university is located in the Miami Valley region of Ohio and is proud of the ties it maintains with the Miami Tribe, now located in Oklahoma. Here, high achieving, intellectually curious students prepare for success as they are given the opportunities of a large research university while experiencing the personalized teaching, attention, and sense of community found in the nation's best small, liberal arts colleges.A public university, Miami offers a wide range of academic programs. The bachelor's degree is offered in more than 115 areas of study in Oxford, the master's degree in 67 areas; doctoral programs are also available in 12 disciplines. At the school's regional campuses, 18 bachelor's majors and 11 associate's degrees are also offered.Dedicated to fostering an environment of engaged learning for more than 200 years, Miami faculty guide undergraduate students in conducting significant research, facilitating projects with real-world clients, and developing the leadership skills top employers seek most. As a result, Miami has been on the short list of "schools where the faculty has an unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching" eight times, every year since 2010. On the 2017 list, Miami ranked second overall and first among public schools nationally. With a long-standing commitment to global learning, complete with a European center in Luxembourg, Miami University is ranked first nationwide among public doctoral institutions for its percentage of undergraduate students studying abroad.

Miami's four-year graduation rate is 21st best among public universities in the U.S. and students are accepted into medical and law schools at rates far above the national averages. Nearly twice as many employers recruit at Miami as at comparable universities and four times as many on-campus interviews are conducted than at peer institutions. Miami is regularly cited by national publications as a "best value" in higher education. Additional recognition as having a high return on tuition investment is supported by surveys and national data indicating that 96.6 percent of Miami students who graduated in 2015-2016 were employed or continuing their education by fall 2016. The Oxford campus encompasses more than 2,000 acres. With its distinctive modified Georgian architecture, it is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful campuses in America. The beauty has been maintained and the school's carbon footprint reduced while Miami has efficiently constructed and renovated several academic buildings, residence and dining halls, as well as its student-managed Armstrong Student Center.Enrollment is approximately 17,000 undergraduates and 2,400 graduate students; an additional 5,100 students are enrolled at Miami's regional locations in Hamilton, Middletown, and West Chester, Ohio.
