Undergraduate Studies

At Lehigh, living and learning go hand in hand. You’ll get to study and pursue research here on campus and across the world, in some of the most unlikely of places.

The cornerstone of the Lehigh experience is flexibility, and we encourage our undergraduate students to take courses outside of your college to create an education that is as unique as you are. Remember, your professors will be more than teachers: They will be research partners and mentors.

Welcome to a place where we see things not for what they are, but for what they might be …

A place where we know the answers the world needs are bigger than one person …

A place where working together, we are genius.

Here at Lehigh, innovation is not an elective. Existing thinking provides a structure—so that you can knock it down and use the pieces to build a new path forward. Our students see the world as a dynamic place where their ideas and imagination allow them to find a new perspective. After all, future leaders don’t just learn how it’s done … they discover how to do it better.

Academic Fusion

At Lehigh, you can pursue 90 programs and majors. But you also have the chance to customize your learning experience by fusing together traditionally separate fields—choosing from 20 multidisciplinary programs that are fresh, exciting and uniquely Lehigh.
