Why University of Detroit Mercy?

People, not numbers

University Detroit Mercy online courses are small. The average student-to-faculty ratio in our online programs is 15:1. This means you’ll have the opportunity to build real relationships with both your professors and your classmates.

Faculty as engaged in your learning as you are

UDM’s faculty are here to help you succeed. Our professors are active participants in your online courses, providing feedback and guidance, answering your questions, and helping you stay on track. And at UDM, you’ll be working with faculty who are experts in the field, not Teaching Assistants still finding their way.

Active learning

Learning is something you do and our online courses reflect that. UDM courses engage you in in problem solving and research that integrates theory with practice.

Jesuit and Mercy

UDM faculty integrate the sponsoring religious communities values, compassionate service to persons of need, commitment to quality education, service of faith, and promotion of justice into their lectures and discussion.
