Welcome to the College of Letters & Science at Montana State University!

The College of Letters and Science, the largest center for learning, teaching and research at Montana State University, offers students an excellent liberal arts and sciences education in nearly 50 majors, 25 minors and over 25 graduate degrees within the four areas of the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics and social sciences.

Building on the great strength of our traditional disciplines, the college provides exciting opportunities for faculty and students at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary inquiry.

Our students engage in dialogue with dedicated teachers and work side-by-side with distinguished researchers and scholars. Together they participate in projects at the forefront of science and technology, solve pressing social problems, explore diverse values and cultures, and inform contemporary cultural debate in areas such as politics, philosophy and literature.

Graduates from the college report impressive employment success, with nearly three quarters of them employed upon graduation and the other quarter attending graduate school, medical school or law school.
