Colleges and postsecondary institutions in Minnesota offer a wide variety of programs to students. In order to find an institution that offers a program of your choice, you should filter your search by Area of Study and Award Level. The areas of study listed on the website correspond to the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP), a taxonomic coding scheme of primarily postsecondary instructional programs categorized by major field of study to create standard classifications for reporting purposes. Please refer to the Areas of Study page to find out which programs are included for each area of study listed on the search filtering options
