The ultimate goal of MSU is to establish a University with ten faculties by 2015. To date the University offers degree programmes in seven faculties. These are Arts, Commerce, Education, Law, Natural Resources Management and Agriculture, Science and Technology and Social Sciences.
The degree programmes on offer have been strengthened through flexible packaging of modules. Flexible packaging allows students studying for a particular degree to make themselves more marketable by including in this package of studies modules ?shopped' from other programmes. This is a new method of teaching and learning in Universities which is meant to satisfy the specific requirements of the students and their chosen professions. The packaging of modules dissolves the regimentalisation of the older educational curricular, hence students become out flexible and well equipped for the special needs and diversity of the actual world of work. The main purpose of flexible packaging is to enable students to overcome professional rigidity so that they can respond positively to new situations, possibilities and challenges of industry, especially within the rapid changes dictated by new technologies and economic environments.

“Short of a wholesale reform of college athleticsa complete breakdown of the whole system that is now focused on money and powerthe womens programs are just as doomed as the mens are to move further and further away from the academic mission of their colleges.... We have to decide if thats the kind of success for womens sports that we want.”
