The University of Massachusetts Amherst is a coeducational, nationally ranked research institution located in a beautiful, culturally rich New England town surrounded by hills, forests, lakes, and meadows, just a few hours from Boston and New York City.

Unlimited Opportunity
A public university assisted by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, UMass offers an excellent education at an affordable price. Its size, diversity, and the richness of its academic and extracurricular offerings, provide almost unlimited possibilities for personal growth and professional development. A distinctive feature of UMass is the opportunity for undergraduates to become directly involved in research, and get hands-on experience in numerous areas through internships or field experience. UMass also offers a wide range of service learning and volunteer opportunities.

The Five College Consortium
UMass is a founding member of the nation's oldest and most successful college consortium, Five Colleges Incorporated, which includes Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith colleges as well as the University. UMass students may take courses on any of the five campuses at no extra charge. A free bus system links the campuses.

Each year about 18,000 undergraduates and 6,000 graduate students attend UMass from all 50 states and nearly 100 foreign countries, though the majority of undergraduates are from Massachusetts. Students can earn bachelor's degrees in nearly 100 areas, associate's degrees in six, master's degrees in 68, and doctorates in 50, within the University's 10 undergraduate schools and colleges, and the Graduate School.

School and Colleges
The schools and colleges that make up the University are: Commonwealth College, the state's honors college; School of Education; College of Engineering; College of Food and Natural Resources; College of Humanities and Fine Arts; Isenberg School of Management; School of Nursing; College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics; School of Public Health and Health Sciences; College of Social and Behavioral Sciences; and the Graduate School. The interdisciplinary Bachelor's Degree with Individual Concentration program enables students to focus on their specific interests, and the University Without Walls program provides the opportunity for non-traditional students to earn a degree.
