The university's beautiful campus is situated on over 200 acres of rolling landscape in the supportive and enriching community of Millersville, PA, just three miles from Lancaster City; an hour and a half from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; two and a half hours from Washington, D.C.; and three hours from New York City.

With the professional assets of major cities nearby, students can seek internships in a variety of corporate sectors, including positions with Fortune 500 companies. The city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is appreciated by students who like its family-friendly atmosphere that also offers art and culture, such as the Lancaster Theatre, a national historic landmark.

Intellectually Enriching Programs in Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Science, and Education

With more than 50 bachelor's degree programs in the areas of science and mathematics, education, and humanities and social sciences, students will find an academic major to suit their interests at Millersville University.

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences is at the center of the university's liberal studies as all students learn to communicate effectively and think intellectually. This school offers many of the courses in the university's general education plan, a program that all students complete. More than a third of all Millersville students are enrolled in majors at the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, which includes intellectually enriching programs in visual and performing arts, languages, history, and philosophy, among others.

Students will discover a rigorous program for future success in today's science and mathematics fields within the School of Science and Mathematics, which supports students with state-of-the-art research centers and facilities. There are many post-university options for students in the School of Science and Mathematics. Graduates of the majors in this school advance in their industry, business, research, and teaching careers, and disciplined thinkers go on to prestigious graduate and professional schools.

The programs in the School of Education are tied directly to the university's heritage; Millersville's history includes its early training of Pennsylvania teachers. Today, the School of Education houses six departments with multiple programs, including preparations for teachers, educational staff, and other critical disciplines.

University Activities Prepare Students to Be Leaders on a Broader Scale Following Graduation

Student life can mean shopping at the bookstore, meeting friends in the campus coffee shop, or working out in the university fitness center. The most fulfilling student life often includes attending campus events and joining student organizations.

A Student Programs Office encourages the campus community members to accept leadership roles, attend activities, and participate in student life events. Many Millersville students compile a student involvement transcript during their time at the university. This is a record of leadership, participation in student organizations, service activities, and professional development. This type of transcript offers employers or graduate schools an idea of students' contributions.
