    School Overview

    The University of Missouri was founded in 1839 in Columbia as the first public university west of the Mississippi River. In large part, MU's quality can be traced to Missouri's comprehensive view of education. While other states created separate research and land-grant institutions, Missouri combined its research and land-grant efforts at one university. As the state’s largest and most comprehensive university, Mizzou has more than 300 degree programs, including 89 online options, through 18 colleges and schools and is one of only six public universities nationwide that can claim a medical school, veterinary medicine college and a law school on the same campus.
