The University of Montana and Missoula easily attract highly qualified faculty and researchers, as well as students from across the country and abroad – all of whom enjoy living, working, and learning amid the city’s picturesque mountains.
With almost 15,000 students and 830 full-time and part-time faculty members, UM’s 19:1 student-faculty ratio makes it a friendly campus with plentiful research opportunities for undergraduates.
