At MU, you are more than just a number. Learn how faculty care for their students and prepare them for their careers.

Millersville University is located in a sport industry-dense region, thereby providing numerous locations for field study/internships. Three intercollegiate sport conference offices are located within 30 miles and NCAA Division I, II, and III institutions are located within the region. Within a 3-hour drive, there are over 20 professional sport teams (NFL, MLB, NBA, WNBA, NHL, NLL, and MLS), their affiliated venues/facilities, plus several minor league affiliations and higher education institutions with athletic departments.  

Lancaster County is also home to: Spooky Nook Sports, an innovative sports complex; an annual professional tennis tournament at Bent Creek Country Club; and numerous other sport-business related facilities (e.g. fitness clubs, golf courses, park and recreation associations, ice rinks, and elite-level sport programs) within its borders. This wide variety of potential hands-on experience attracts students from the surrounding region and beyond.
