Missouri Southern State University
Each semester at Missouri Southern State University represents a new chance to make the grade by serving students while striving to advance the importance of higher education in region – and the 2016-17 school year is no different.

For students interested in entering the field of medicine, the Yours to Lose – Advanced Medical School Acceptance Program is an opportunity to gain early admission to Kansas City University’s new medical school in Joplin, MO. The program allows up to 25 students – and up to 15 alternates – to be admitted to the medical school at the same times as their admission to Missouri Southern. They will earn their bachelor’s degree in biology in three years and then begin their first year of medical school.

As a part of meeting the needs of those students and others, they have undertaken a major renovation project in Reynolds Hall, which houses biology, mathematics and physical and chemical science departments. The $17.5 million project will include a three-story addition that will house additional classroom space.

Missouri Southern is also offering a new bachelor’s degree in geography, while the social work program has doubled in size for the start of its second year. New master’s degrees are also available in management and teach-education-administration.

As always, it’s a time of new beginnings, new challenges and new opportunities. For more information, visit www.mssu.edu.
