Bemidji State University first opened as the Bemidji Normal School in 1919, preparing teachers for employment in Minnesota’s public school system. By 1921, the school expanded into a four-year program. Likewise, as the curriculum expanded, the school transitioned to Bemidji State College in 1957, and by 1975, gained University status.

Students can pursue more than 65 undergraduate programs of study, and the most popular include fields in education, business, science, technological studies, criminal justice, and psychology.
