The state’s largest bricks-and-mortar college wants to make it easier for students to earn degrees without leaving home. The University of Missouri’s flagship campus in Columbia on Friday announced a $2.5 million expansion of its online degree programs, including master’s degrees in public health and public affairs and a bachelor’s degree in educational studies. Mizzou has long offered classes to those unable to come to Columbia. Its distance learning program is more than a century old, and MU High School, created in 1999, has become a nationally known online option for self-paced homeschoolers, child actors and precocious athletes such as world champion skier Lindsey Vonn. But the demand for more options from working adults, far-flung professionals and even traditional undergraduates living on campus calls for increased online offerings, according to university administrators.
