International Programs

The Office of International Programs supports the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences to be a globally engaged institution that promotes responsible stewardship of agricultural and natural resources in communities close to home and across the world. Through a comprehensive approach to internationalization, the Office of International Programs aims to bring awareness of intercultural competency to the college, to facilitate collaboration amongst students, staff and faculty to address global concerns, and provide training and study abroad opportunities for CFANS staff and students and for people around the world.

Go Abroad

Studying abroad is a transformative experience. You will practice communicating and working across cultures, gain an international perspective in your field of study, prepare to work in a global economy, gain valuable life experience, grow as a person and prepare to meet global challenges through the people you'll meet and what you can learn from them. We offer short-term study abroad, semester study abroad, exchanges and international internships.
