    Journalism, Class of 1974

    I have no ides what the UofM provides at this point in time. At the time I graduated when the dinosaurs prowled the Earth they offered very little except the excellent reputation of the School of Journalism.

    4 Rated January 2016

    Family Social Science, Class of 2010

    None, my major does not equate to a "real world job". I would have had to pursue a master's degree in either social work or marriage and family therapy after receiving my bachelors.

    1 Rated January 2016

    Chemical Eng, Class of 1992

    Excellent technical program, but geared toward research. Few links made to real-world application. Little networking.

    The U of M is huge. But the Theatre Department was more like a small, intimate school. So I felt like I had all the advantages of a giant university, plus the advantages of a close-knit community. The culture of the U of M as a whole can't be defined any more than the culture of a large city can be defined.
