A private research university with more than 16,000 students from around the world, the University of Miami is a vibrant and diverse academic community focused on teaching and learning, the discovery of new knowledge, and service to the South Florida region and beyond.
The University comprises 11 schools and colleges serving undergraduate and graduate students in more than 180 majors and programs. In 2016, U.S. News & World Report ranked UM No. 44 among the top national universities in the country in its “Best Colleges” listings.

Established in 1925 during the region's famous real estate boom, UM is a major research university engaged in $324 million in research and sponsored program expenditures annually. While the majority of this work is housed at the Miller School of Medicine, investigators conduct hundreds of studies in other areas, including marine science, engineering, education, and psychology.
The University of Miami has three campuses on more than 400 acres in Miami-Dade County locations stretching from Coral Gables and the city of Miami to South Dade.
The mission is to educate and nurture students, to create knowledge, and to provide service to the community and beyond. With that in mind, UM invites you to enjoy the many programs that offer the best of the intellectual, research and cultural contributions to the South Florida community.
Students learn best when they study what they love, and at the U your education is distinctly yours. UM gives students the freedom to cross disciplines and design their studies around their strengths, curiosities, passions, and goals and advances their potential by providing a multitude of resources—from career counseling and honors programs, to writing workshops and opportunities to study abroad—to prepare them for success.
