About Academic Programs at SMC

Practical, hands-on instruction. Experienced teachers. Research opportunities.

Southwestern Michigan College offers stellar academic programs designed to prepare you for what’s next, whether that’s employment in a skilled field or transferring to a university to continue your education. 

All courses are taught by highly credentialed instructors with experience in the field—not teaching assistants. An emphasis on hands-on learning and practical education helps you understand the connection between theoretical knowledge and real-world application. 

Students in the Honors Program regularly participate in research projects and present their findings at national conferences alongside university and graduate students.
