Department of Applied Technology & Technology Managment

Department of Business Administration

Department of Criminal Justice

Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation

Department of Mass Communication

Department of Social Work

Department of Teacher Education

These departments prepare students to combine their broad and well-rounded general education with specialized training in a way that, when the prescribed curriculum is completed, they will be ready to enter into their respective careers and/or into graduate school to further their formal education.

Some of the profound trends brought about in the last two decades are the increasing intensity of global competition, rapidly changing markets and unparalled technological innovation. In order to stay competitive in the global market, one must understand and cope with dynamic and complex issues. As a state-supported institution, Mississippi Valley State University is responding to these contemporary societal needs by providing professional degree programs and experiences that will prepare the graduates to take on these societal responsibilities.
