Interested in studying abroad?

MSU has international student study abroad and exchange programs that may suit your interests! For example, we have a student exchange program with the University of BOKU in Vienna. Visit the Office of Study Abroad for more information.

Interested in Peace Corps?

Agricultural knowledge and skills are highly valued for Peace Corps International experiences. Graduate students have combined their Peace Corps experience with their research or program of study. For more information, contact the MSU Peace Corps office, and speak with your primary faculty advisor.

Students interested in enrolling in EFFS, in need of a course substitution, or other EFFS program advising should contact Dr. Matthew Grieshop. Special topic, Study Abroad, and other related courses may be substituted for an elective course.
