The University of Minnesota offers more than 135 undergraduate degree programs. Whatever you are interested in studying, you will likely find here! Our degree programs are organized into seven freshmen-admitting colleges within the University. Students are admitted into one of these colleges directly in their first year and immediately begin to benefit from the smaller community of students, professors, advisers, and classes specific to their college. Each college has its own identity, size, and number of majors, and its buildings are typically clustered within one or two areas of campus. The largest colleges in terms of enrollment are the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Science and Engineering. The smaller colleges are the College of Biological Sciences; the College of Design; and the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences. The College of Education and Human Development and the Carlson School of Management are medium-sized.
Through our colleges, we offer extensive academic support services and advising to help students succeed in all stages of their academic and post-academic careers. Academic advising and career advising take place within each college and are specific to that cluster of majors. The University also provides many enhanced academic experiences designed to help students succeed in all aspects of their education. We invite you to explore the degrees we offer, the huge volume of research university staff and students are engaged in, as well as the ways in which we support our students.
