OSU’s partnership with China Agricultural University (CAU) brings dual-degree students to CASNR and the department. The program began in 2011 and provides student participants from each institution an opportunity to study in and benefit from the academic and cultural environment of the other institution. This includes the opportunity for OSU students to spend an academic year studying at CAU.
