  • A Close-Knit Academic Community

    What separates MU from other institutions is the attention we give to each student. No large lecture halls. No classes taught by graduate students. Classes are small, and professors are proud to know their students by name. With such close interaction at MU, students have more opportunities to learn and succeed. They're conducting hands-on research with faculty. They're getting one-on-one counseling and support. They're networking. This is the Monmouth experience, where every student matters.
