Message from the President

Welcome to Metropolitan State University, "Where life and learning meet." I invite you to explore the many ways in which our University, now in its fourth decade of creating educational opportunity for working adults and other traditionally underserved populations, can enrich your life and your future. Metropolitan State is a vital contributor to the educational, social, cultural, and economic vitality of the region.

Over 11,000 students like you attend our programs at many convenient locations, including our three main campuses--in Saint Paul, downtown Minneapolis, and Midway -- and on the campuses of several area community colleges. Our state-of-the-art Library and Learning Center supports students in every program and houses a branch of the Saint Paul Public Library, to serve the community at large.

With over sixty undergraduate majors, ten Master's programs and new doctoral programs in Business Administration and Nursing Practice, many of which are offered online, Metropolitan State offers programs that meet the needs of new and returning students from across the Twin Cities and beyond.

I invite you to explore the University's website and then to visit with an advisor to explore the degree programs that interest you most.
Thank you for your interest in Metropolitan State University!
