Deep Academic Resources
While Millersville University began in 1855 as a teacher's college; it now offers a wide range of graduate and undergraduate majors in the areas of science and mathematics, education and humanities and social sciences. Undergraduate students may take their education one step further by applying to the Honors College, a program that challenges them to raise their academic and professional sights beyond their expectations.
Awakening the Intellect
The educational community of Millersville University endeavors to awaken a sense of limitless possibility in its students, creating the conditions in which students can become conscious of their own intellectual capacity to explore these possibilities, and of their own motivation to do so. This is Millersville's commitment to the education of the public it serves.
Millersville provides a broad-based support system to nourish body and spirit. Our experiential learning programs, athletic teams, and diverse clubs and organizations help our community, as well as our students, to strengthen and flourish. We are all enriched because the people who are Millersville – staff, faculty, students, parents, and alumni – believe that a good life begins with learning, that hard work leads to great things, and that caring leads to a better world.
