At St. Cloud State, your education goes beyond the classroom. Our focus on applied learning means you get the opportunity to gain real-world experience in your field of study. By focusing on providing hands-on learning and interaction, we put you in a position where you can turn academic experiences into marketable skills.

As the second largest public university in Minnesota, we offer cutting-edge facilities and academic research opportunities, without compromising on personal instruction and support of a smaller school.
