Get ready to meet your next mentor

Missouri State was founded more than 100 years ago as a school where future teachers came to learn to teach, and our faculty members still love to interact with you in the classroom.

You can develop one-on-one relationships with your favorite professors and instructors.

We’re a teaching institution, but our faculty members are also committed to ground-breaking research. They turn their ideas into action and help people, communities, the environment and more.

You can be a part of the process

You may find opportunities to contribute in a high-tech lab facility or in the field. You’ll have opportunities to work on real, publishable research, or present at national conferences. Many of your instructors worked, or still work, in the areas they teach — so you can count on their expertise and connections.

There are so many amazing projects going on at MSU. We have an online publication called Mind’s Eye that tells many stories about faculty research and scholarly activities.
