Schools and Colleges

SMU’s strength lies in fusing teaching and research into breakthrough academic experiences. This balance is rare among national institutions, yet fitting for a university like SMU that values balance and breadth in education. With more than 100 majors and 85 minors to choose from, as well as double and triple major opportunities and accelerated degree programs, you can go as far as you want and as quickly, 太.



SMU’s faculty and students join forces as co-creators of knowledge that spans the arts, 科学, 工程, business and the humanities. Even in their first year, students become hands-on contributors to significant discoveries. In collaboration with industry, nonprofit organizations and other institutions, our researchers forge paths to results that can be applied ethically on a local, national and global scale. SMU researchers shape these discoveries into economic opportunities, stronger communities and a better world.
