Not a concentration program

University Courses are sponsored by the College or University rather than by individual departments or programs and may be taught by members of the faculty in any academic unit on the Ann Arbor campus. The College offers as University Courses both full-term courses and mini-courses.

First-Year Seminars, open to all first-year students, and Collegiate Seminars, open to all students who have completed the Introductory Composition requirement, provide a unique opportunity to students seeking a small-class educational experience during their first college years. These seminars are offered each term on a variety of topics, and may be used to fulfill part of the Area Distribution requirement in Humanities (UC 150, 250), Social Science (UC 151, 251), Natural Science (152, 252) and Introductory Composition (153); some seminars may be used to fulfill other graduation requirements as well. The University Courses Division also sponsors a number of other full-term interdisciplinary courses covering a wide range of subjects and disciplines; many of these courses may also be used in partial fulfillment of the Distribution requirement.

University mini-courses are one-credit, special interest offerings which center upon a conference, group of lectures, or special exhibit, appear on short notice in a term, and are usually of 2-to-8-weeks duration. Mini-courses are offered mandatory credit/no credit and are normally excluded from area distribution and concentration credits. Information about upcoming mini-courses is available by dialing POINT—10 (764-6810). Mini-courses are elected on Election Change Worksheets (Drop/Add forms) as the courses are announced in a term. No more than two University mini-courses may be elected in one term. Mini-courses elected by the end of the first three weeks of classes in a term are elected through normal CRISP procedures. Information about procedures for electing University mini-courses after the first three weeks of a term, their individual drop/add deadlines, and other related matters is available from 1223 Angell Hall, the bulletin board across from 1213 Angell Hall, or by calling POINT—10.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

West Quad Annex, L110
747-2768

The UROP program enables students to work outside the classroom with a small group of students and a faculty member of their choosing. These groups become research teams that work together for about 10 hours per week during the course of the academic year. Each group investigates a topic that is of interest to the group, and meets with other students in the program for educational and social programs.

All first- and second-year undergraduates within the University of Michigan are eligible to apply to UROP. Selections are made on a rolling basis and are determined by the students' level of interest in doing research, commitment to a project, evidence of academic preparedness, and by the availability of positions.
