Academic Areas

Miami Semester students must be enrolled full-time (minimum of 12 credit hours) for the duration of the semester.

Students enroll in two to three core courses from their chosen area of study. Remaining credits (one or two courses) are selected from other departments and schools based on individual program requirements, academic interests, and course availability. 

We can assist you to design a semester that meets your academic requirements and interests. If an academic area of study is not listed below, please contact the Miami Semester office to inquire if your program of interest is available. Email us at

Academic Bulletin

Review the University of Miami Academic Bulletin for academic programs and courses. Please note, not all courses are offered regularly, every term. To find courses available for the term you are planning to visit, check the course search.
