University of Detroit Mercy has one goal: To help our students realize their dreams and ambitions. We do this 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 more than 100 academic programs to prepare you for your future. No matter which path you choose, 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 passionate about their fields of study, but students are their top priority. When you need extra help — whether it’s preparing for a test or putting together a grad-school-wowing research project — they’re there for you.

We let you prove yourself.

UDM's co-op programs have impressive connections with businesses and institutions here in Detroit and across the country. We'll show you how to turn what you’ve learned in the classroom into paid professional experience.

If there's not a co-op opportunity in your field, we'll work with you to find the right internship or research project, or help you study abroad to experience life and learning in another culture.

We turn you loose.

UDM alumni are doing great things nationwide. They're successful doctors and lawyers, teachers and scientists, artists and entrepreneurs. They include many of our region's prominent business, political and cultural leaders. They're also your peers, who will be happy to welcome you into their circle of success when you graduate.
