Programs
Study, intern, or volunteer abroad as an
Agricultural Economics or Agribusiness
major or minor! Distinguish yourself on the
job market and gain valuable academic
experience while you learn who you are.
Faculty-Led Study Abroad
Faculty-led programs are short-term study tours over breaks, intersessions, or
summer in which you learn and travel with a K-State professor and students.
Cultural activities and excursions are often included.
Exchange Program
Exchange programs allow you to pay in-state tuition and fees while attending one
of our more than eighty partner universities abroad. These programs offer you a
more independent experience and are generally for a semester or academic year.
Summer Program
Summer term is one of the most popular times for K-State students to go abroad,
as you can take coursework or volunteer for a shorter and often less expensive
program. Choose a faculty-led program that may run during May or summer term,
or go on a summer exchange to or directly enroll in a university abroad.
An international experience can be affordable!
