Big Campus Quality. Small Campus Benefits.

Duluth might be the fourth most-populated city in Minnesota, but it still feels like a small-town thanks to the vast, evergreen forests that surround the city and its proximity to breathtaking Lake Superior–Earth’s largest freshwater lake.

It’s no wonder why Outside Magazine named Duluth the "Best Town in America" in 2014, but it’s just as easy to enjoy museums, restaurants and live music as it is to hike, ski, or kayak.

At the Duluth campus, graduate students have access to innovative, advanced facilities and opportunities to participate in cutting-edge research, scholarship, and creative activity in a close-knit, collegial environment, working side by side with an active community of faculty researchers.
