Be prepared, confident and ready for your career

At Missouri State, we know you live in the real world — and so should your education. You should have the chance to put your classroom learning into practice. That’s why we believe in experiences: Internships. Networking. Educational trips. And so much more.

You’re in the land of the Bears

Here, you’ll feel like you’re part of something bigger — because you are. Our traditions combine fun, such as Homecoming, with meaning, such as a community engagement service project. We’re friendly — some of the most common words Bears use to describe the student body are passionate, engaged, positive, innovative, welcoming and awesome.

Our community: Springfield

A growing business center. A town known for colleges — but so much more than a college town. A developing city where you can expect great networking as you start a career. Springfield is all this and more. What will it become to you?
