Academics at SVSU
SVSU doesn't expect you to know exactly who you are or all you can accomplish. Here, you are allowed to question, take risks and explore. In fact, we encourage it.
We keep our classes small so professors not only learn your name, but they can help you understand what drives you. Our professors shape your education around you, not the other way around.
You might be a thinker, scientist, athlete, artist, inventor or musician. No matter your gifts, our classrooms promise to shape you in ways that unleash incredible opportunities.
SVSU not only offers you an expansive range of programs, we also have nationally regarded degrees. Our students outperform competition from leading private and public universities across the country
