Does success have a launching pad, a formula, step by step instructions?
Step one: Imagine.
Step two: Do!

As a student at the University of Utah, you'll have more than 80 undergraduate degrees to choose from, with nearly as many minors and certificates. But it's not the number of academic majors we're proud of - it's the quality of our programs. For instance, did you know that the David Eccles School of Business is consistently ranked by the Public Accounting Report and U.S. News & World Report? Or that both the London Times Higher Education World Ranking of Universities and the Academic Ranking of World Universities Shanghai Jial Tong University put the U in the top 51 universities globally?

In fact, the U.S. News & World Report ranks our nursing, chemistry, audiology, computer sciences, law college, MBA program, earth sciences, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, social work, biology, clinical psychology, physics, english, civil engineering, occupational therapy, psychology, history and political science in the top 100 programs of their type? And that was just this year!

And where do you fit in?

At the U, it's our goal to provide every student the chance to be part of a unique educational experience.

We call it the My Utah Signature Experience, or "MUSE" - and it's one of the reasons your degree at the U will mean more.

So whether you choose to add an undergraduate research project, a Bennion Center community service project, a semester studying abroad, or an internship through the Hinckley Institute of Politics to an already superb education, you can make the U all your own.
