Founded in 1871 as a teaching school, the University of Central Missouri is now a public state university. U.S. News & World Report lists UCM as #21 in Top Public Schools while The Princeton Review features UCM among the “Best Midwestern.” The most popular majors at UCM are nursing, criminal justice, and elementary education. Students have the opportunity to study abroad in over 60 countries, including New Zealand and France.
UCM is the best of both worlds. You get the small town feel and the feeling of a big campus all at once. The people are friendly, the classes and teachers are personal, and everyone is always more than willing to help.
