North Michigan University

North Michigan University

Northern Michigan University, located in Marquette, Michigan, is a dynamic four-year, public, comprehensive university that has grown its reputation based on its award-winning leadership programs, cutting-edge technology initiatives and nationally recognized academic programs.

 

 

 

Northern Michigan has a population of about 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students.  It offers 147 degree programs, including 25 graduate programs.  The university has two semesters per year, a fall and winter semester, and two summer sessions.  NMU  is one of three Michigan public universities to also serve a community college role for its region, which means the breadth of NMU’s academic programs range from one-year diplomas through master’s degrees. NMU will begin offering its first doctoral program – the Doctor of Nursing Practice –  in fall 2014. NMU’s most popular bachelor’s degrees are art and design, nursing, criminal justice, elementary education and biology.  The university’s fastest growing academic areas are clinical science, biology, and the geographical and environmental sciences.

 

Some of the NMU degree programs to receive national or international recognition in the past three years have been art and design, business, computer science, education, English and nursing. Some unique aspects of Northern’s academic menu include being the only university to offer five national Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science accredited programs in the United States and one of three universities nationwide with both diagnostic molecular science and cytogenetics programs.  NMU is one of only two Michigan universities to have an entrepreneurship major.  It also has one of the few programs in the country for both ski management and wildland firefighting.  Programs that boast 90 percent placement rate or higher are business, clinical sciences, engineering technology, music education, line and power technician, and theater, as well as our pre-medical and pre-dental students for professional school admittance.  In fact, Northern has programs in 42 of the 50 fastest growing occupations as identified in the “Training for Michigan’s Hot Jobs” report.

 

One of Northern’s most consistent traits is for providing outstanding personal attention to students.  More than 75 percent of NMU's  300-plus full-time faculty members have doctorates or the highest degree in their fields, and a hallmark of the NMU experience is that full-time faculty members teach at all levels - freshmen through graduate courses.  NMU’s 1,100 employees view helping students succeed as not only a university priority, but a personal goal.

 

Northern’s hometown of Marquette is a city of 20,000 residents located along the southern shore of Lake Superior. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula region is known for its safe, friendly and natural environment.  Marquette enjoys four distinct seasons that are celebrated by a wide variety of festivals and activities throughout the year. The Marquette community and Northern Michigan University are intricately intertwined, which adds to the vitality of the area and to the opportunities available to NMU students.

 

NMU’s 360-acre campus features 52 facilities, including the Seaborg Science Complex, a state-of-the-art venue with more than two dozen laboratories, and recently renovated Thomas Fine Arts and Art and Design buildings.  NMU's campus also houses a university theater, an award-winning library, a university center, two art galleries, and a three-structure sports and recreation complex of which one is the Superior Dome, the world's largest wooden dome. The diversity of the U.P.’s geographical terrain serves the NMU community as an extensive outdoor classroom. The university also owns an 18-hole golf course and a large woodland area.
