About Miami

Miami is a public university of Ohio. Approximately 15,000 undergraduates and 2,600 graduate students are enrolled at the Oxford campus. Each year about 220 of the undergraduates attend one or two semesters at the John E. Dolibois European campus in Differdange, Luxembourg. Two commuter campuses in the nearby cities of Hamilton and Middletown enroll nearly 5,500 additional students.

Miami's Voice of America Learning Center services several hundred undergraduates and graduate students each session in a  multipurpose instructional facility that also offers customized training opportunities for business, industry, school districts, and government agencies.

Academic Divisions and Programs

Miami has seven academic divisions: College of Arts and Science; Farmer School of Business; College of Creative Arts, College of Education, Health and Society; College of Engineering and Computing, College of Liberal Arts and Applied Science, and the Graduate School. Programs leading to associate, bachelor's, master's, Specialist in Education, and doctoral degrees are offered. Major areas, degrees, and certificates are listed beginning later in this section. Graduate certificates are also available.


The main campus of Miami University is in Oxford, Ohio, just 35 miles northwest of Cincinnati and 45 miles southwest of Dayton. Both Cincinnati and Dayton international airports are within an hour's drive. U.S. Route 27 and S.R. 73 are the main highways to Oxford.

Oxford is a classic college town with a population of about 8,000 (excluding students). Uptown, adjacent to campus, are small shops and local eateries.

The university covers more than 2,400 acres in Oxford. Preservation of nature throughout the campus and community coupled with Miami’s architectural continuity - modified Georgian design - explains why the campus is regarded as one of the most beautiful in the nation.
