Midyear changes to current courses (titles, descriptions and credit hours) are not reflected here and can only be viewed in myZou.
MU grants 25 percent of the bachelor’s degrees from Missouri public universities. Mizzou provides an intellectually diverse environment with 360-degree learning for students from every state in the nation and more than 120 countries.
Offering more than 300 degree programs through 19 colleges and schools, MU is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. Ninety-two percent of full-time, ranked faculty members have doctorates or the highest degree in their field. Dedicated to interdisciplinary education, MU faculty and students from different schools and colleges often collaborate. For example, some courses in the sciences are taught in conjunction with MU’s medical school, and humanities classes include areas such as music composition and creative writing.
MU is also dedicated to the Missouri Method, a philosophy of hands-on learning that includes operating a floral shop (Tiger Garden), preparing income taxes for families, studying abroad, volunteering for credit, providing health care, working at the country’s only university-owned TV network affiliate (KOMU), performing at Carnegie Hall and co-authoring articles in leading scientific journals. Mizzou students also hold patents and create startup companies.
