Plymouth State University is a close-knit learning community where students are empowered to reach their highest potential both in the classroom and in life. With 55 majors and more than 60 minors, PSU provides students with a solid liberal arts foundation and a deep and practical understanding of their chosen field, as well as numerous opportunities to apply what they’ve learned through research and service on campus and around the world.
The College of Arts and Sciences upholds the rich values of the Liberal Arts tradition by providing breadth and depth of education crossing the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, mathematics, and sciences. We endeavor to cultivate critical and creative inquiry, sensitivity and understanding of cultural, social, and historical pluralism and context, independence of thought and reasoning, service and social agency, and to foster an abiding appreciation for aesthetic and epistemological diversity.
The College of Business Administration provides professional programs for students seeking careers within business and non-profit organizations. The focus of our programs is on applied and practical business and managerial skills; we seek to provide graduates who will be sought after by employers. The faculty is composed of both academic scholars and successful practitioners. It includes members with international academic reputations as well as successful former CEOs, CFOs, and managers. Our students benefit from the latest research in business trends and the experience of seasoned managers.
The College of Education, Health, and Human Services is dedicated to developing the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to effectively work with children, adults, families, and organizations across a wide variety of settings including educational, health, physically active, human services, and law enforcement. Practices are promoted that are grounded in current research, holistically focused, developmentally appropriate, and culturally competent.
