Joining the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources means joining a global network of alumni, employers, faculty, staff, students and friends, working together to make a CAFNR education truly outstanding.

We encourage all our students to go beyond the classroom and have one or more signature experiences as defined by RISE: Research, International – Study Abroad, Service Learning and Experiential Learning. Our study abroad programs introduce you to ideas from around the globe — bringing an important new perspective to your world. Our undergraduate research internships, real-world experience (including a student-run flower shop, ice cream shop and meat market) and variety of clubs and organizations mean endless opportunities to further explore your interests. Hear more about CAFNR from our CAFNR Student Ambassadors.

We are proud to offer one of the largest scholarship programs on the MU campus. Each year CAFNR awards more than $1.5 million in scholarships. We are here to help you figure out the college process — with services to help you pick a major, a class schedule and, ultimately, the perfect career. Or, stay in the CAFNR family a little longer with our graduate programs.
