What Do You Want to Be?

Ferris Student

You deserve a personal, practical education. To us, that means that you'll never be just a number in a crowded classroom. Professors will know your name and help you succeed. At Ferris, 80 percent of classes have fewer than 25 students — which means you'll benefit from innovative instruction, personal learning support, one-on-one career advice, and professional connections and expertise.

Since its beginning, Ferris State has been a leader in career-focused education, providing the best selection of technical and professional majors in Michigan. More than 89 percent of the degrees awarded here since 2006 align with an in-demand occupation.
