Long considered one of the nation’s strongest regional universities, Muskingum’s enthusiasm for the future has never been stronger.
Muskingum offers a wide range of undergraduate and interdisciplinary majors, including nursing, engineering, business, education, global studies, the natural and social sciences, and the humanities; numerous pre-professional programs; and three master’s degree programs.
A friendly place where people feel comfortable — Muskingum is where the focus is on the individual, both inside and outside the classroom. But it is more than a collection of individuals; it’s a community in every sense of the word.
The university’s mission is to develop – intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically – whole persons, by fostering critical thinking, positive action, ethical sensitivity and spiritual growth, so that they may lead vocationally productive, personally satisfying and socially responsible lives.
While at Muskingum, Chorale members spend most of their time in Caldwell Hall and Walter Hall. Both established in the early 2000s, Caldwell and Walter provide students with hands-on experiences in communications, media, theatre, radio, music, and digital journalism.
Learning at Muskingum is a hands-on experience. Most classes are interactive discussions rather than lectures. Muskingum students have the chance to work with peers and their professors. And, if the student is so inclined, he or she can take advantage of numerous international exchanges or off-campus study programs. Nearly half of Muskingum students have an internship experience.
Founded in 1837 by Presbyterians of Scotch-Irish descent, Muskingum continues to be associated with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and takes its church-relatedness very seriously, offering courses in religion and philosophy and a full complement of religious-life programming.
Muskingum University’s commitment to the region is exemplified by strong partnerships throughout Ohio, including its role as a catalyst for economic development and tourism. The university also sponsors a wide range of activities including arts-related events, national conferences, the Southeastern Ohio Symphony Orchestra, arts and science festivals for school children and scores of athletic events.
