Minot State University: A place to have the experience of a lifetime.

Located in north central North Dakota, Minot State University is a place where east meets west. Nestled on the northern edge of the Mouse River Valley, the campus stands at the heart of the "Magic City."

The city of Minot - nicknamed the "Magic City" for its phenomenal growth during the early 1900s - is a regional center for commerce, culture, healthcare, agribusiness and industry. Minot is home to Minot Air Force Base and is a key service provider in the burgeoning Bakken oil play that's made North Dakota's economy one of the strongest in the United States.

Vision 2013 is the map that navigates the success of MSU. Offering more than 60 undergraduate majors and several graduate degrees, we've positioned ourselves to meet growth in fields such as criminal justice, education, management, nursing, social work, the sciences, energy economics and finance and management information systems. Graduates from our master's program in speech-language pathology are highly sought after.

We provide students an exceptional education at one of the most affordable prices in the nation. We are committed to individual student success: with a student-teacher ratio of 14:1, class sizes are optimal for hands on learning. We encourage student involvement in research; we emphasize campus and community engagement; and our strong athletic programs participate in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference in the NCAA Division II.

MSU is an international campus, with students from 28 countries - many from Canada. Most U.S. students hail from North Dakota, Montana and Minnesota. Nearly all 50 states and several Native American tribes are represented in our student body and on our faculty. In return, we have a strong study abroad program allowing MSU students to study nearly anywhere in the world.

And Be seen. Be heard.

To say Minot is going through a growth spurt is an understatement. You don't have to travel far to see it, building of apartments, condos and single family homes  are keeping contractors busy. Talk with anyone from this area and they will fill you in on the Bakken (Bah-ken) formation, an oil formation named after a farmer in Williston, ND, Henry Bakken, who owned the land where it was initially discovered. New rock fracturing technology has enabled companies to get at the oil, something that was nearly impossible thirty years ago. North Dakota is now number two in the nation in oil production.  But Agriculture is still the state's number one industry.  It's what the state is known for, what our ancestors did when North Dakota began. The City of Minot also has its roots with the railroad.  That’s how the name “Magic City” came about.  As crews made their way west, they settled in for the winter wherever they were, and that just happened to be Minot.  The once sleepy little town suddenly boomed overnight…….just like magic! Take a moment to learn more about this community to see what Minot has to offer in the way of entertainment, parks, shopping and so much more.  Discover what truly makes Minot magic!
