University of Miami

At the University of Miami, we transform lives through teaching, research, and service. Through our core values of diversity, integrity, responsibility, excellence, compassion, creativity, and teamwork, the University of Miami creates a learning environment in which contributions are recognized and valued. We educate leaders, problem solvers, and agents of change who are passionate about learning, eager to contribute to their community, and free to color outside the lines. As a student, you are admitted directly to your major without having to wait two years to get down to business. Whether you seek to make your mark in science, service, or the arts, we nurture that passion through programs that integrate academic rigor and theory with real-world experience. With the flexibility to choose from more than 180 majors and programs across nine schools and colleges, you are encouraged to design a curriculum that is distinctly you. Our Cognates Program of General Education allows you to complete requirements with courses that reflect your individual interests and goals. Combine all of your passions by taking three sets of related courses from across the University for an education that is both broad and deep. With a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio and over 280 clubs and organizations to join, you can translate acquired knowledge, experiences, and connections into successful and fulfilling achievements. With access to an international metropolis, experiential learning opportunities abound. The vibrant, diverse city of Miami offers a range of internship opportunities in your own backyard, from nonprofit organizations to multinational corporations and everything in between. You can connect with faculty on projects ranging from volunteer experiences to cutting-edge research. Explore topics such as genomics, the humanities, climate change, and more, and make major contributions to new knowledge as early as your freshman year.
