Whether you want to live near Lake Superior in Duluth or amidst the fast pace of the Twin Cities, our state offers a wide range of opportunities.

Duluth offers a small college feel with access to all of the resources of a large University. With 50 students per class, our students in Duluth form very tight connections that last throughout a career. Located in the newly-remodeled Life Science Building, the Duluth campus offers opportunities for collaboration with the medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy and social work programs, and immediate access to health care delivery. Our students also have access to expert faculty, dedicated to continuously improving interdisciplinary pharmaceutical care education, research, and practice. Would you like to live in a growing community with a thriving arts district? If so, then Duluth will be a perfect fit!
Our Twin Cities campus is the only Big Ten campus located in a major urban environment. The resources available to students are unparalleled. Located in Weaver-Densford Hall, the Twin Cities campus offers interprofessional activities with medicine, nursing, dentistry, public health and more. You might be surprised to find out how small the college feels with only 100 students per class. Students tend to think of it more as a family than a university.

If yes, then the Twin Cities could be right for you!
