UofM Academics Overview

What happens when you take students with diverse talents and backgrounds and put them together with internationally known faculty? Something pretty amazing comes together. It's what you find at The University of Memphis. Here, we're recognized the nation over for our academic and research programs. But what matters most to our students are the more than 254 areas of study to explore. Students come here from all over the world to receive bachelor's, master's, professional and doctoral degrees. They come here to do, to create, to learn, to grow. To improve the world. That's what Memphis does.

Our beautiful campus is home to the FedEx Institute of Technology, where world renowned researchers solve complex problems affecting society, and the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort Management, created by the late founder of Holiday Inns. Pre-professional training is available for students planning to enter dentistry, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy or veterinary medicine. The University proudly offers Air Force, Army and Navy ROTC programs.

Making our students' lives easier is important, so we offer convenient high caliber degree programs entirely online through our TN eCampus.info, including the Bachelor of Professional Studies in information technology or organizational leadership and the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies in general studies, liberal studies or university studies.

Helen Hardin Honors Program

We are home to the largest honors program in the state of Tennessee. Top academic performers with big ambitions find a rich, diverse experience through our Helen Hardin Honors Program. We combine the best of a small liberal arts school with the wide-ranging opportunities of a large, nationally recognized research university. While all of the 1,300 honors students excel academically, they also are part of a dynamic and diverse student body of more than 20,000 students. The program has produced Goldwater Scholars, Truman Scholars and Fulbright Scholars. Many departments within specific academic programs offer their own honors programs, so there are many ways for students to graduate with honors. The UofM also has a well thought of Emerging Leaders Program where students get real world experience to become tomorrow's leaders.
