Welcome to Plymouth State University, a vibrant regional comprehensive university that combines a heritage of teaching excellence with innovation in research and in community engagement.

At Plymouth State University, you will find a wide array of fine graduate programs and a faculty and staff committed to student success. With more than 75 options in business, science, education, and the arts, PSU appeals to a large range of interests.

Our graduate faculty members are well-known in their fields and regularly honored. Mardie Burckes-Miller (Health and Human Performance) was a 2008 Fellow of the Academy of Eating Disorders. Patricia Lindberg (Education) received the 2003 Youth Theatre Director of the Year Award from the American Alliance for Theatre and Education and a 2007 Excellence in Education Award from the New Hampshire Department of Education.

Research on the Canada Warbler being conducted by Len Reitsma (Biology) and PSU students was featured in October, 2008 in a premier bird research journal in North America, Auk, and in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology. Marcel Lebrun (Education), recipient of the 2008 Graduate Teaching Award, is a nationally recognized expert on depression in children and adolescents. At PSU, graduate students work side-by-side with such faculty, who are active scholars, researchers, and creative artists.

These are only samples of the extraordinary work being done at Plymouth State University. As you browse our Web pages, please take time to read the news stories about our student, faculty, staff, and alumni accomplishments.

Located in a beautiful New England setting at the gateway to the Lakes Region and the White Mountains, an outstanding natural laboratory for learning, Plymouth State University has been recognized as one of the “Best in the Northeast” by The Princeton Review – for good reason.
