About Truman State University

Consistently ranked among the nation's best colleges in publications such as U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, and Kiplinger's, Truman State University offers 51 undergraduate majors, 60 minors, graduate programs and graduate certificate programs, and several pre-professional areas of study. As Missouri's only highly selective public liberal arts and sciences university, Truman is best known for offering exceptionally high-quality academic programs and an amazing educational value.

A college small enough for professors to know their students by name, Truman attracts some of the brightest minds in the country by providing an engaged community of learners where individuals matter. Students explore a wide range of perspectives and learn important critical-thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills that empower them for success in multiple career paths. Challenging academics, compelling and supportive professors, learning experiences that count in the real world, and nearly 240 student organizations create an environment where intellectually curious students can thrive.

Campus information

Dating back to 1867, our beautiful 210-acre campus blends old and new with a mix of historic and contemporary red-brick buildings that provide modern living and learning facilities. Lush green spaces like the Quad and the Sunken Garden and an impressive library filled with natural light and plenty of group study areas make campus a comfortable place to study, make new friends, and socialize.

Truman’s vibrant, active campus exemplifies the ideals held by its namesake, Harry S. Truman, who embraced and promoted the value of an affordable, well-rounded education for everyone. We do, too. We pursue it.

Located in Kirksville in the northeast corner of Missouri, our beautiful, residential campus provides a friendly and welcoming place where students live, learn, work and play together.
