CMU offers more than 200 academic programs at the undergraduate, master’s, specialist and doctoral levels.

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.

Central is located in a quaint, tight-knit community in the heart of central lower Michigan. Our community offers a robust mix of outdoor opportunities, family attractions, and restaurants and brew pubs. Mount Pleasant’s small-town life is complemented by cultural activities on campus, including concerts, plays and guest speakers. Mount Pleasant is an hour or two from most Michigan destination spots, including Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing and Ann Arbor, as well as the state’s sunset beaches, golf and ski resorts, and our famous “Up North” communities, state parks and lakes.
