Degrees

The schools and colleges of the University award a large number of different degrees. Some departments (Fisheries and Wildlife, for example) offer only one undergraduate degree (Bachelor of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife, BSFW). Other departments (Economics, for example) offer two different degrees (Bachelor of Arts, BA and Bachelor of Science, BS); both with a major in Economics.

Different degrees have different requirements, so it is important that you know which degree(s) your department offer(s) and the requirements for the degree(s).

Degree Planning Resources

Just as there are almost unlimited enrichment opportunities available to you at MU, there are an incredible number of resources available to you that you should use as needed on a regular basis.

As you plan a major and what courses you must take and what courses you would benefit from, below are some of the resources you will find most helpful.

  • A Degree Audit (also called DARS: Degree Audit Reporting System) is an automated record of a student’s progress toward completion of a degree. It matches degree requirements with a student’s transcript and reports those requirements that have been completed and those that still need to be done. Degree Audits are not yet available for all majors. Please check with your academic advising office or your major adviser to determine if an audit is available for your major and how you can obtain one. Assistance in running a Degree Audit is available.
