Five Mizzou Degree Programs Slated For Elimination

The education specialist degrees offered through the special education program and the Career and Technical Education program, respectively, were the first to be removed from the list of active degree options.

Students pursuing the three degrees projected to be cut will be permitted to finish their programs before they are phased out. The Natural Resources master's degree, the Communication and Science Disorders doctoral degree and the Environmental Geology baccalaureate degree are affected.
