The University of Detroit Mercy has one goal – to help our students realize their dreams and ambitions. We fulfill that goal by offering challenging academic programs taught by talented, committed professors and supplemented by hands-on research, co-op, and internship opportunities.
We challenge you.
UDM offers approximately 100 academic programs in fields as diverse as architecture and psychology, business and nursing, teacher education, and engineering. No matter what major you choose – and we have a special program if you're not sure yet – you'll get a solid foundation in the liberal arts that will sharpen your communication and problem-solving skills and give you the cultural context to thrive in any environment.
We support you.
Our professors are endlessly curious about their fields of study, but their true calling is teaching. They'll share their ideas with you, expect you to contribute your own, and be there for you when you need extra help – whether it's prepping for a test or putting together a grad-school-wowing research project.
We let you prove yourself.
UDM's co-op program has impressive connections. We'll show you how to get paid professional experience in businesses and institutions around Detroit and across the country. If there's not a co-op program in your field, we'll help you find the right internship or research project or help you study abroad to find out what it's like to live and learn in another culture.
We turn you loose.
UDM alumni are doing great things across the country. They're successful doctors and lawyers, teachers and scientists, artists and entrepreneurs. They include many of the region's prominent business, political, and cultural leaders. They're also your peers, and will be happy to welcome you into their circle of success when you graduate.
