Research

CLAS students benefit from Wayne State's unique identity as a public, urban research university holding the Carnegie Foundation's highest classification for research. They have countless opportunities for hands-on learning, not just in our laboratories but throughout the community, through partnerships with local hospitals and access to Michigan's amazing natural resources.

Aspiring writers, artists, and actors study within walking distance of the nation's best museums, libraries and theatres, and a wide range of study abroad opportunities help them become well-rounded global citizens.

Social science majors benefit from Wayne State's Midtown location, which provides them with the opportunity to work alongside local law firms, community organizations and law enforcement agencies in one of the world's most fascinating and diverse cities.

Here, classroom work leads to real-world application, equipping students to go out and change the world.
