Today, with more than 100 degree programs in over 75 academic departments and programs, University of Michigan's College of Literature, Sciences, and Arts (LSA) is the largest of the University of Michigan's 19 schools and colleges and is at the heart of the University.
The College is built upon the idea that a powerful, pragmatic, broad education can transform hearts and minds, can solve problems in an ever-changing world, and can yield ideas and innovation across every discipline.
45 LSA programs are among the top 10, and two programs are the best in their fields. As the primary undergraduate college, LSA is the reason U.S. News & World Report ranks U-M as one of the top universities for undergraduate teaching.
LSA consistently has a first-year retention rate of more than 95 percent. Nearly that same number of our seniors—96 percent—go on to enter the workforce or attend graduate school. And we have one of the largest alumni networks in the world, with more than 200,000 living LSA graduates.
