Whether you have a lifelong career dream or are still figuring it out, we’ll help you find a program that makes going to school feel less like work and more like play.

The Best Part About Being a Roo

We offer a wide variety of academic areas for you to choose from, but we also know most colleges can say the same thing. What sets UMKC apart is that our classes are more than just academic credits — they’re stepping stones to help you land a job you love (even if you haven’t decided what that is yet).

Our professors have one goal — help you to learn, grow and become the person you’re meant to be. They’re here because they love working with students like you. The best part about being a Roo isn’t just the experience in the classroom, it’s seeing where that UMKC education will take you after graduation.

Whether you dream of working in the community, on stage, in the classroom or on the other side of the world, we’ll help you get there.
