Colleges and Universities in Montana

Montana cities might not fit the mold of a typical college town, but then Montana doesn't necessarily appeal to the typical college student. No, rather than spend time doing the same old thing every weekend, students at colleges in Montana can hike mountains, whitewater raft or hit the trail on horseback. There are 16 ski areas and two national parks that make the state an outdoor fanatic's dream. You can even go llama trekking! There's great food, too, and microbrews a-plenty. The Montana university system comprises 14 universities and colleges that together enroll more than 45,000 students. Whether you are looking for a research university or want to gain science and technology skills, you'll find options within Montana that can help to keep you there.
