Over 150 Majors and Minors

Tucked into 87 square miles of adventure, entertainment & opportunity.

Students enjoying time together at UMD's annual Welcome Week celebration.

Why UMD?

Think of us as the Goldilocks location of the University of Minnesota system. In that we're just right. Not too big, not too small. We have 150 majors and minors taught by world-class faculty, with a community that gives you the best pieces of what large research universities and small liberal arts colleges can offer. Our standard of excellence has been proven over and over, most tellingly by the fact that 97% of our recent graduates are employed or continuing their education within 6 months to 1 year of graduating.

So why do students come here?

It might be the opportunity to take part in some of the 260+ clubs and organizations or the chance to play varsity athletics for a team with National Championships under their belt.

For others, it might be the chance to take a study break in the 11,000 acres of public space, on the 160+ miles of hiking trails or along the shores of the mightiest of the Great Lakes. Still, others might want to take advantage of Duluth's thriving arts scene, where one can find a seemingly endless list of live music, theater, film, comedy, dance and art events every week all year long.
