Study Abroad Opportunities


The Food Science Department provides structured international experiences that are relevant to the field of food science. Study abroad enhances the student experience and helps participants gain skills that are highly valued by employers such as communication, flexibility, teamwork, problem-solving and cultural understanding.  Only 1% of students study abroad, so participating in an international experience helps students gain a competitive edge in the job market.
