Manchester University Academic Catalog 2016-2017

Welcome to Manchester University!

At Manchester, we do some things differently than other colleges and universities. First, we welcome you to be yourself. And then we challenge you to be your best self.

We don’t tell you what to think at Manchester, but we will teach you how to think — critically and analytically for the rest of your life. At Manchester, we learn from each other’s differences and we’ll encourage you to explore new ideas, new perspectives and new places. By the time you graduate, you’ll be able to synthesize everything you’ve learned. You will decide for yourself who you are, who you want to be, and the values you cherish most deeply.

Education at Manchester is a holistic experience that includes rigorous courses, mentored research, service to others, study abroad, hands-on learning, internships, leadership opportunities and a wide range of student activities and athletics.

In this University Catalog you’ll find:

  • Our mission and values
  • Majors, minors, certificates and courses
  • Graduation requirements
  • Faculty
  • Campus facilities
  • Lots of “nuts and bolts” information about MU

At Manchester, you will be challenged, but supported. You’ll find inspiration and encouragement. We’ll know your name. We will celebrate you and, together, help you become your best self.
