What is your passion? MU likely has a program to fit that. One example is agroforestry, one of MU’s online agriculture, food, and natural resources degree programs.
The rapidly expanding and globally acclaimed field of agroforestry is a big part of it. Mizzou Online offers a graduate certificate and a Master’s degree program. Be part of the revolution, just like Meredith Evans.
“I feel like Mizzou is definitely on the cutting edge of everything that’s happening here, with the Agroforestry program, especially with our conservation program. We're so far ahead as a nation.”
Researchers at the University of Missouri are helping land managers understand how to use controlled fires to reach forest management objectives. How cool is that?
So what could you do with an agroforestry degree? Graduates of the online programs can go on to help landowners diversify their income, improve soil quality, and increase biodiversity.
“For prospective students that are considering agroforestry degree here at Mizzou, it's a lot of work but, if it's something that you're passionate about, it's a truly incredible program. I would highly recommend it.”
And that’s just one online program within the MU College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. There’s also a graduate certificate for food safety and defense.
