School Overview

Founded in 1817 as the “Catholepistemiad of Detroit,” the University of Michigan was the first public university in the Northwest Territories. In 1821 the name changed to the University of Michigan, and it moved to Ann Arbor in 1837. By the 1860s, U-M was viewed as a model for younger state and public universities because it was the largest and most successful. It remained an all-male school until the winter of 1870. Today, U-M is one of the most distinguished public universities and a leader in higher education attracting top students and faculty from all over the world.

As a comprehensive university, U-M offers degrees and certificates at all levels from nearly 20 academic schools. Students can take online courses as part of their degrees.
