About Montana State University

Montana State University (MSU) is in a class of its own. MSU is among the top 3% of colleges and universities for research expenditures, and is also classified by the Carnegie Foundation as an institution with a high undergraduate profile. This means that undergraduates at MSU get research opportunities typically reserved for graduate students at other schools. Plus, MSU’s location at the crossroads between Yellowstone National Park and some of the biggest skiing in America offers students a classroom, lab and playground unlike any in the world.

MSU prepares students to graduate equipped for careers and further education. MSU’s low student to faculty ratio means accessible professors and hands-on learning opportunities. Working alongside world-class faculty mentors, students discover new knowledge that helps to improve quality of life around the globe. This supportive and collaborative learning environment helps students succeed in competing for national and international scholarships and awards. In the past year alone, MSU students have received prestigious awards including:

  • Goldwater scholarships (math, science & engineering)
  • Rhodes Scholarship (to study at Oxford University)
  • Marshall Scholarship (grad school in the United Kingdom)
  • Udall Scholarship (to pursue careers in the environment)
  • Newman Civic Fellow (public leadership)

MSU maintains and exceeds a variety of accreditation requirements that were designed to ensure high quality educational standards. MSU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. During its most recent re-accreditation, MSU was commended for an "extremely high level of productivity and effectiveness." In addition to national accreditation, many of MSU’s colleges, departments and programs also maintain rigorous accreditation credentials through discipline specific agencies.

Campus information

Montana State University is located in Bozeman, Montana.

Bozeman is a small town with big energy. Perhaps best known for outdoor recreation, Bozeman also has the cultural amenities of a much larger city including a symphony, opera, and ballet companies, as well as many locally-owned shops, restaurants and galleries that make Downtown vibrant. Skiing, hiking, camping, biking, climbing, and fishing options are endless because Bozeman is surrounded by five mountain ranges including the Bridger, Tobacco Root, Big Belt, Gallatin and Madison ranges; and the Gallatin, Madison and Yellowstone Rivers are all within a half hour of campus. There is plenty of National Forest land to explore, and Yellowstone National Park is just 90 miles away.

Getting around the Bozeman area is no problem, regardless of your mode of transportation-foot, bike, bus or car. Paths and bike lanes connect campus to downtown and the 60 mile Main Street to the Mountains trail system links the city to the nearby mountains. In addition to routes around town, the free Streamline Bus system runs to the slopes during ski season.
Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is the state's largest airport.
