Global Opportunities

Opportunities for International Studies associated with the College of Agricultural Sciences.

The Lincoln University / OSU exchange is the College of Agricultural Science's flagship program.  Established in 1975, scores of students have "traded places" for an international experience during their degree programs due to the ease of transferring credits between our very similar institutions.

Each Winter, CAS offers a 2 credit seminar-style class on important and contemporary issues facing global agriculture.  There is also a companion Educational Tour in August or September for 2 additional credits to experience first-hand the multiple dimensions of agriculture in a particular country or region.  Past Educational Tours have taken students to China, Italy, Australia, France, and more!
