At Truman State University, you will have an honors college experience in every classroom. You will enjoy smaller classes taught by professors instead of graduate students. You will participate in class discussion, work on group projects, and talk with professors after class. You will learn from the people who sit next to you in class and the people who live down the hall.
With a 16:1 student-faculty ratio, you will get the personal attention you need from a world-class faculty. All of our professors have an open-door policy, meaning you can stop by their office during their office hours to discuss class, get extra help on an assignment, or just chat about the
day's events. Many professors will even provide their home phone numbers in case you need unexpected help with an assignment. In an age when most colleges put a premium on faculty research, at Truman, your success is our top priority.
As an undergraduate student, you will gain the hands-on experience that will prepare you for graduate school or for any leading company. Truman students have had exciting internships as early as their freshman year working with government leaders, business executives, broadcast and print media professionals, accountants, archeologists, marine biologists, advertising agents, doctors, musicians and artists. Truman also participates in the
Truman in Washington Program and sponsors the Missouri Government Internship Program.
Along with internships, you will discover real opportunities for research. Research at Truman spans all disciplines, and each year Truman awards approximately 40 institutional grants to undergraduates pursuing research projects. Last year, more than 1,200 students participated in
undergraduate research. These types of real life experiences can open windows of opportunity and provide a link between the classroom and the world beyond campus.
