About Montclair State University (MSU)
With more than 20,000 students, Montclair State University is New Jersey's second largest university, and we feel a special pride in our reputation for exceptional faculty, commitment to excellent teaching and the quality of our scholarship and research. We are proud that our mission of providing an excellent education to a diverse and talented student population is being fulfilled on our campus every day.
Our University was founded in 1908 with the purpose of training the future teachers of New Jersey, and, over the last century, has grown into a comprehensive university in which teaching and learning in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, the arts, business, and education and human services take place in a dynamic environment. When our students graduate, they are well prepared to become responsible citizens and to pursue careers in their chosen professions.
