We want

great things

for you and they happen here.

Like, what great things? Well, you could meet a professor who changes the way you think—and discover a major that becomes your life’s work. You could make a difference firsthand by feeding the homeless on the Sandwich Bus. You could go on amazing journeys, whether it’s a midnight bike tour of downtown Detroit, or a trip to San Francisco to present your undergraduate research project to an audience of PhDs. All the great things that happen while you’re at UDM will get you ready for all the great things that will come afterwards.

One lives on campus, the other commutes from home. But this part’s the same: both have great things happening for them at UDM.

Academics

The most important reason to choose a college is academics. That’s where UDM is particularly great. In fact we’re a topranked school in our category in Michigan. Our menu of majors and degrees is vast as well as excellent, so you’ll have a lot of fantastic choices. Our highly regarded programs in architecture, engineering, nursing, business, cyber security, and psychology have launched thousands of careers, as have our pre-med, pre-dent, and pre-law programs. One more thing: UDM has a top ranking by U.S.News in the “Great schools, great prices” category. see more great things: udmercy.edu/ learn/undergraduate

every hour. And at any given moment, half the students in David Koukal’s honors philosophy class will be waving their hands in the air. That’s because, as Prof. Koukal likes to say, “philosophy brings you into contact with the most fundamental human questions that human beings ask.” It’s all about learning how to think—a skill that will always be in demand.

ST U DEN T: Suppose we had a secondary discussion, not about the doctr ine’s tr uth fulness but about its usefulness, and came to a 8.29 am unanimous opinion that the my th was in fact actually useful, rega rd less i f it was tr ue? T hen your question would be moot.

How does our faculty teach?

14:1

Academics

At a time when many colleges and universities are making classes a lot bigger, UDM continues to maintain its low 14:1 student-faculty ratio. And that’s the fundamental value of a UDM education—up-close-and-personal attention from professors, coaches, and mentors who are thinking first and foremost about teaching you. In fact, when our students talk about what they like about UDM, it’s faculty they always mention first. These are real experts who keep their office doors open, who answer your e-mails at midnight, who give you hands-on research opportunities, and conduct study-abroad trips. And when extraordinary people are invested in your success, it’s a great thing that you’ll carry with you all your life. see more great things: udmercy.edu/about/meet_faculty/index.php

“When you graduate, you will be in a fantastic position. For one thing, you’ve already worked a full year in industry in a co-op program. You’ll have a tremendous advantage over other people just coming out of school.” Mark Paulik, Professor Electrical & Computer Engineering


“We make ourselves available to students as much as we possibly can, and the students take full advantage of that. I always tell my students, I’m here to give you the tools so you can do the critical thinking and discover the answers yourself.” Ninee Yang, Instructor Health Economics

“Architects from around the country ask me to recommend students to come work for them. I have students now working in California, Alaska, all over the country—and it’s because they’ve been here at UDM.”  aniel Pitera, Associate Professor D Architecture

“If you want small class size paired with extreme interaction with scholars doing cutting-edge research, then this is the place for you.”  att Mio, Assistant Professor M Chemistry & Biochemistry

“You will have so much support during your years here that, when you graduate, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you want to do, what’s important to you, what your goals are and how to achieve them.” Mary Ann Hazen, Professor Business Administration

Great things happen

every Semester.

“In the ER you have to prioritize and do what’s most important first. They teach you that in nursing school, but with this co-op, I’m actually applying it. We see patients from age 0 to 100. People might come in with a cold or not breathing. So I’m not only hearing about a theory in class or reading it in a book, I’m seeing the process right in front of me. It’s an awesome experience to have before you graduate. Other schools don’t require this like UDM.”

cO OP

Co-ops & Internships

At UDM we believe what you learn in books is only part of the story. A lot of great things also come together when you’re out in the field, or in the lab having realworld experience. That’s why our Career Education Center helps hundreds of students secure co-ops and internships every year. In some programs, paid co-ops are actually a required part of the degree—because we know that the hands-on experience you’ll gain will not only bolster your resume but will be a fantastic complement to the classroom part of your education. It also helps to know that many of our faculty are practicing professionals in their fields—so they can tell you what it’s like out there in the working world. see more great things: udmercy.edu/coop

“The most beneficial part of my co-op was my improvement in leadership skills” Adam R. Uhlianuk, Civil Engineering Co-op employer: Professional Service Industries, Inc.

“Obviously a co-op or internship is vital to developing a career in architecture. This internship allowed me to learn not only the technical requirements of an architect but also the personal and administrative. I’ve learned a lot about the structure a project takes as it goes through development.” Brian T. Nelsen, Architecture Co-op employer: Kenneth Hahn Architects, Inc

UDM’s co-op program is the first in Michigan and the third-oldest continuous program in the nation.

What is

Co-op?

It’s the best of both worlds. You’re working in a real job with a real salary, AND for required programs, you’re getting college credit toward your degree. In a co-op you apply your theoretical knowledge in a realworld setting. It’s like being paid to have an educational experience.

And at the end of my internship, I received an e-mail extending me a full-time offer to be a financial analyst at Ford.” Alex Watkins, Business Administration/Finance concentration Co-op employer: Ford Motor Company
