University of Missouri-Kansas City Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
I thought the geosciences department at UMKC leaves a lot to be desired. It focuses more on geology and geography then environmental science. Other than a small group of teachers, most are too focused on research to offer much career advice or class advice. Offer basic classes in soil, air and water sampling/monitoring and the HAZWOPER should be a required class.
I had a great time and I earned a degree that helped me get into a professional school.
UMKC has an amazing dual degree program and staff for business and tax law. However, student loans and interest are outrageous! I would avoid a general liberal arts degree that doesn't provide you with some specific skill that makes you employable. I would do what I can at a junior college first before going to a 4 year university. Study abroad- amazing and very formative experience to grow as a person. Learn a foreign language; Spanish is very useful in the US. Remember that college should be a great experience but you may want grades that get you into grad school.
Attending The Univ of Missouri was an excellent fit for me. The instructors were very helpful from the first day we walked on campus to the Annual Alumni Mgts we attend every year with the Dean.
I would do it again but begin my education career sooner.
Dream Big and Go For It !!!
