We offer the best of both worlds. Some students value personal interactions with their instructors. They want to be known by name and be able to sit down with faculty members and learn from them in person. For other students, it is more important to learn from faculty who are actively engaged in research and have an up-to-date understanding of science. At MSU Billings, we offer the best of both worlds. Small class sizes allow us to focus on our students as individuals and make their learning experience more personal than at larger universities. The faculty at MSU Billings are also active researchers. Because of this, students are exposed to science on a first-hand basis. This isn't true at most smaller colleges. At MSU Billings, our faculty are excellent teachers who are committed to active research. This is a place where you can have the best of both worlds.
