Nationally recognized as one of the country’s most outstanding undergraduate institutions, Miami University is a public university located in Oxford, Ohio (35 miles north of Cincinnati), with regional locations in Hamilton, Middletown, and West Chester, Ohio, and the John E. Dolibois European Center in Luxembourg. Miami combines a wide range of strong academic programs with the personal attention ...ordinarily found only at much smaller institutions. A liberal education core complements the more specialized studies of the majors.
Along with an impressive number of opportunities to gain practical, hands-on and immersive experiences, Miami is distinguished by a faculty who enjoy teaching and mentoring students. Recognized as a “Public Ivy” by Richard Moll in his 1985 book about America’s flagship universities, Miami has long been recognized by such publications as U.S. News & World Report for an unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching (3rd in the nation in 2012). This commitment to teaching is demonstrated in the University’s record of exceptional retention and graduation rates—which are among highest for NCAA Division I schools. Miami also is ranked the top public doctoral university in the country for study abroad participation by undergraduate students.
Chartered in 1809, Miami is the seventh-oldest university in the nation. Current enrollment includes almost 15,000 undergraduates and over 1,800 graduate students on the Oxford campus, which is lauded for its exceptional beauty. The charming, historic uptown area of Oxford is adjacent to the campus.
Miami offers bachelor degrees in over 100 areas of study and master's degrees in more than 50 areas; the University also offers a number of doctoral degrees.
