Welcome to MTSU’s Online Undergraduate Catalog!

As we celebrate our Centennial, MTSU introduces an online catalog with searchable features. These include advanced search options to quickly find programs, majors, and courses; intuitive navigation; and a personal portfolio-My MT Catalog-to store favorite programs and courses.
The 2011-2012 Graduate Catalog will be published in the fall. Previous undergraduate and graduate catalogs can be found at www.mtsu.edu/ucat.
