Welcome from the Dean of The Graduate School

Dr. Karlene Hoo, Dean of The Graduate School

The Graduate School welcomes you to Montana State University.  We are delighted that you have chosen MSU. Graduate school is a place where you will gain expertise in your field and prepare to become the scientists, engineers, nurses, educators, agronomists, artists and architects of tomorrow.

When you become an MSU graduate student, you become an essential part of the university by conducting cutting edge research, assisting in instructional teaching, and making significant contributions to your field of study. The Carnegie Foundation recognizes MSU as one of 108 research universities with "very high research activity” and graduate education is one of the keys to achieving this ranking. With over $90 million in annual research expenditures, MSU’s research enterprise is fueled by the scholarship of skilled graduate students.

We invite you to explore the MSU website to learn more about our outstanding graduate programs, the exciting and challenging opportunities afforded graduate students, and the eclectic community of Bozeman, Montana. The Graduate School staff and I are committed to helping you succeed at all points throughout your education and welcome your questions and comments.
