On the 100th anniversary of distance education at MU this year, two distance learning programs are merging into one: Mizzou Online. The first program, The Center for Distance and Independent Study, offered general studies classes set to the students’ own timelines and one bachelor’s degree program. The second, MU Direct: Continuing and Distance Education, offered semester courses, graduate degrees and four bachelor’s degree programs. All of these will be offered through Mizzou Online. Stacy Snow, Mizzou Online interim director of marketing, said the merge will bring efficiency to distance learning programs. “We wanted to make it easier (for students) to understand how to get distant education from the university.”
