Dual Degree Programs
The Master of International Agriculture Program has partnered with Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP) and Unversidad Autonoma Chapingo to offer dual-degree Master’s programs. These programs provide student participants from each institution with an opportunity to study in and benefit from the academic and cultural environment of the other institution. For each degree, the student will have a “home” institution and a “host” institution at which the student studies abroad, taking courses in partial fulfillment of the “host” institution’s degree requirements.
Dual Degree with UPAEP
Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP) is a private university with a population of about 8,000 students. With a mission to “create schools of thought and form leaders that transform society,” UPAEP is known for producing successful graduates. The Master of International Agriculture Program now has a total of seven corresponding degrees at UPAEP to offer maximum flexibility while keeping the student’s interests in mind. For the purposes of this Dual Degree Program, OSU and UPAEP students will be assessed a tuition fee at a rate arranged bilaterally between both institutions. These rates will depend on the number of courses taken by each student and the current student rates. A contract to this effect has been established between each partner school.
Dual Degree with Chapingo
Universidad Autonoma Chapingo, established in 1854, is located in Texcoco, Mexico. Known as the country’s most prestigious center for Agricultural Studies, the University also houses the National Museum of Agriculture. Universidad Autonoma Chapingo is considered a rural campus, somewhat analogous to the land-grant status of Oklahoma State University. The university boasts a heavy focus in research and extension, with 14 of their Master’s degrees and all 8 of their PhD programs funded by the Mexican National Council for Science and Technology.
