Academics at Plymouth State

PSU offers 55 undergraduate majors, more than 60 minors, an innovative University Studies program for students deciding on a major, and 75 graduate degree and certificate programs through the College of Graduate Studies.

  • Sharpen your critical thinking and communication skills by participating in hands-on learning experiences.
  • Encounter experiences that will challenge your assumptions and change your perception about the world.
