At Montana State University in Bozeman, we like to think outside, but not just because
we have access to some of the best outdoor recreation on the planet. We like to think
outside because we are creators, researchers, artists, and thinkers breaking boundaries
in over 250 fields.
Trailblazers have long come to this dynamic place to learn, to grow and to be inspired. They have left with a degree and the tools to address some of the planet’s most important challenges.

MSU is a Carnegie top-tier research university surrounded by millions of acres of wilderness. Our surroundings inspire us to push beyond boundaries — and often serve as our classrooms.
Imagine finding your creative spark as you take a photography class in Yellowstone National Park, summiting a 9,800-foot peak to learn about Earth science, or helping to unearth Triceratops bones in eastern Montana. From the MSU campus to beyond, there’s a new adventure waiting for you around every corner. Learn more about research and creative opportunities.
Making the world a better place is one of our core values at MSU. We pride ourselves on giving back to our communities, whether through volunteer opportunities for students, outreach, or cutting-edge research in everything from honey bee health to wildlife conservation.
As Montana’s first land-grant university, we’re committed to honoring the natural world and each other through service, stewardship, and collaboration.
