The best way to experience it all is to schedule a visit. Or take our virtual tour to see highlights online, including 360 views of our student recreation center and residence hall rooms.

Academic Programs

Ball State has what you’re looking for—more than 190 bachelor's, associate, and preprofessional degree programs, plus more than 100 master’s, doctoral, and specialist programs in seven academic colleges. Best of all, you get the academic opportunities of a large university with manageable class sizes that make them more interactive. And you’ll have professors who actually teach your classes instead of handing them off to their assistants.

Campus and Community

No matter what you want to do, Ball State has the resources you need to do it—television studios, computer labs, artist studios, an on-campus arboretum and greenhouse, an almost accoustically perfect music hall, a Digital Simulation Laboratory. And our vibrant campus is convenient and easy to navigate. Our campus and community are big enough that you can lose yourself in all of the opportunities and activities, but small enough you won’t get lost on your way to class.

Hands-On Experience

Students don’t hide in the back of the classroom. They dig in and get their hands dirty working alongside other students, faculty, and community partners. We call the process immersive learning. Whether it’s teleconferencing with a real business or writing and performing your own musical, you’ll get plenty of opportunities to apply what you learn to real projects. Our faculty will encourage you to take intellectual and creative risks. And if questioning and exploring is really your thing, check out our Honors College, where you can really flex your academic muscle in special seminar-style classes.
