Midwestern State University is one of 36 public institutions in Texas, and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Located in the heart of Wichita Falls, Texas, the 255-acre campus is home to 22 different options for graduate programs within the McAda Graduate School.
Midwestern State University (MSU Texas) is the only university in Texas to become a member of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC). At MSU Texas, students will find one of the top liberal arts colleges in the nation and can ensure they are pairing academics with a creative component. Graduates excel in their careers and are able to apply concepts learned in the classroom to practical situations.
Students at MSU can expect:
MSU Texas' main campus is located in Wichita Falls, Texas. We are two hours northwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth airport and one and a half hours south of the Oklahoma City airport. Near enough to large cities where you can attend big concerts and sporting events on a day trip but far enough away that you can focus on your studies while at home in "The Falls."
Wichita Falls weather is usually warm with abundant sunshine. While we occasionally get a little snow in the winter, temperatures rarely fall below freezing. Summers are hot and sunny, with long days and beautiful sunsets.
Applying to any university can be overwhelming. At MSU Texas, an admissions representative is there to assist students throughout the entire process. Application requirements for each program vary, so it is important to note your program's requirements. Commonly-required items include: $50 application fee, official transcripts from every institution you have attended, GRE or GMAT scores (if required by the program you are applying to), and TOEFL scores.
Being part of a community is key to success at MSU Texas. Whether online or on-campus the sense of community is prevalent. Students can participate in over 100 student organizations at MSU Texas. The Student Development Office hosts more than 100 activities a year from movies on an inflatable screen in our quad, to game nights in our Clark Student Center, to our all-campus picnic that included rock-climbing walls and a mechanical bull. An important aspect of becoming part of our community is living on campus. The Office of Residence Life and Housing has several options from which graduate students can choose that will put you right on campus in the center of all the action. From dorm rooms to apartments, you can find the best fit for you.
