As part of a new online program initiative, Mizzou will move 16 degree and certificate options to online formats in the next year. These for-credit offerings are intended to increase access to affordable, accredited higher education from Missouri's flagship university.

As an online student at Mizzou you will learn from the same faculty who teach on campus, and you will work with student service professionals who specialize in the needs of online, nontraditional students.

Some of these programs will begin accepting applications very soon. Others are slated to start in 2014.
