Hamline University, founded in 1854, is the first university in Minnesota. With campuses centrally located in St. Paul and Minneapolis, we are a small school in a big city. Our student-faculty ratio is 12:1. We’ve been pioneers of change and educational excellence for more than 160 years, defined by our values of social justice, inclusive leadership and global service. Offering undergraduate and graduate programs in education, business, law and liberal arts, we graduate 500 hands-on learners each year who gain practical skills and real-world experience. 100% of students complete an internship, collaborative or field-based research, service learning project or study abroad in more than 40 countries. Hamline University is more than just a degree; it is about preparing students with a purpose.
