Field experiences are an integral part of higher education, and allow students to apply skills learned in classroom lectures and discussions.
Many students in the School of Natural Resources (SNR) extend those enrichment experiences around the globe through the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Study Abroad programs.
A higher percentage of natural resources students participate in study abroad programs than do students in the colleges of engineering, education, health professions and nursing, according to the University of Missouri International Center.
Students in SNR may travel nearly anywhere in the world for their study abroad experiences. Popular destinations are the United Kingdom, western Canada, New Zealand and South Africa. The CAFNR Study Abroad Office also creates opportunities in England, Ireland, the Czech Republic and Costa Rica.
Study Abroad Experiences
"When the opportunity to study natural resources management in western Canada dropped into my lap, I stopped over-analyzing my options and enrolled."
"Saying that studying abroad was the best decision I ever made would be an understatement. The experiences and knowledge I acquired were all so intoxicatingly amazing that I literally think about them every day."
