Teaching and Research
The University of Michigan is a global leader in health, law and public policy, the arts and humanities, science and technology, and many other academic disciplines.
The essence of the University is the academic diversity of our schools and colleges, many of which are among the best in the country, and the degree of interdisciplinary cooperation among them. Our schools of Business, Education, Engineering, Information, Law, Medicine, Music, Nursing, Public Health, and Social Work are ranked among the best in the country.
Students live and study in an atmosphere steeped in languages, ideas, politics, and cultures. Their peers are among the brightest in the nation—and the world—and bring an unrivalled richness to the University. They work alongside the most advanced minds, faculty whose excellence has been rewarded with Pulitzer Prizes, MacArthur Fellowships, and coveted memberships in the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine.
