Study Abroad

study abroad students in GermanyStudying abroad can be an enriching experience for students during their collegiate careers. Students can gain many valuable life skills, including communicating and working across cultures while seeing the disciplines of food science and nutrition from an international perspective. The relationships and experiences gained during an international trip can also help prepare students to work in a global economy, gain valuable life experience, grow as a person and prepare to meet global challenges through the people they meet.

With over 220 programs in 60 countries, the University of Minnesota offers a wealth of opportunities for all students. There are also programs led by the faculty from the Department of Food Science and Nutrition. No matter your major, we are here to help you find the right opportunity.
