Information in the catalog is current as of May 2016. The next catalog will be published in May 2017. In the interim, new courses will be announced in myZou (MU's online student information system), and are usually available in October for the upcoming Spring semester, and in March for the upcoming Summer and Fall semesters. Mid year changes to current courses (titles, descriptions and credit hours) are not reflected here, and will only show in myZou.
MU grants 25 percent of the bachelor's degrees from Missouri public universities, providing an intellectually diverse environment and 360-degree learning for students from every state in the nation and more than 120 countries.
MU offers more than 300 degree programs through 19 colleges and schools and is a member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. Ninety-two percent of full-time, ranked faculty hold doctorates or the highest degree in their field. A highly interdisciplinary campus, it's common for faculty and students from one school at Mizzou to collaborate on projects with those from other schools and colleges. For example, some courses in the sciences are taught in conjunction with MU's medical school, and humanities classes include such areas as music composition and creative writing.
MU also offers an honors college for high-achievers and unmatched real-world experiences, including managing a bed and breakfast (The Gathering Place), 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.
