What Students Are Saying

3.35 Average Rating
The academic rigor at MSU-Moorhead is a very good pace, at least for me as a freshman in college. The professors are very helpful, and they all have office hours you can visit them and get help. It is a fast enough pace to keep me interested but not fast enough that I can't keep up; I still have more free time than I thought I would.
Rachel from Morris, MN
They expect a lot, but this is how you learn.
Danielle from Moorhead, MN
Some classes are harder than others. Try taking a lengthy History course and see how much you remember. For a freshman like myself, the classes have treated me well so far. The diversity of classes combined with the challenges between them are at a good level.
Laura from Bloomington, MN
The academic rigor depends on each professor and the level of the classes you're taking. Overall it is pretty reasonable, most professors just want to make sure you are learning what they're teaching, so that's what your grades will be based on.
Fernanda from Osakis, MN
classes are challenging but not unbearable. a good place to find balance between friends, academics, and family.
Jacob from Moorhead, MN
there are many, many degrees including some unique ones. msum is very good in business, biology, history, and english to name a few. msum is also one of the only universities in the midwest that offers japanese as well as chinese language. the class sizes are perfect for students who want more interaction with the professors.
Sarah from South Dakota
The class sizes are good. Teachers are excellent! They are very friendly and outgoing and are very understanding. There are also a lot of majors to choose from here!
