CMU offers more than 200 academic programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral levels. Academic excellence is found in programs considered among the best in the nation, such as engineering, ...information systems, neuroscience, physician assistant, physical therapy, sales, logistics, fashion merchandising and design, advertising, marketing, public relations, and broadcasting.

Central Michigan University expands its academics with immersive, hands-on opportunities such as research, volunteering, study abroad, internships and leadership experiences.
The fourth-largest university in Michigan began with the mission of addressing a demand for teachers prepared and qualified to lead classrooms and educate future generations. That commitment to fulfilling unmet needs continues today through many newer programs, including our College of Medicine, which in May 2017 graduated its first class of doctors dedicated to serving medically underserved communities.
Employees have access to fitness facilities and a nationally recognized wellness program as well as health care and benefits that exceed regional, state and national norms.
With student-athletes who are expected to perform equally well in the classroom and on the field, CMU is a member of the NCAA Division I Mid-American Conference. CMU Athletics regularly earns accolades for student excellence in the classroom (almost 30 percent of our students were honored in spring 2017 for GPAs of 3.5 or higher) and on the field, with frequent men’s and women’s championship seasons in sports such as football, basketball, gymnastics, field hockey, soccer, baseball and softball, and wrestling.
