W.K. Kellogg Biological Field Station


W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) is Michigan State University's largest off-campus field research station, located 65 miles from the main campus between Kalamazoo and Battle Creek.

Each summer, the W.K. Kellogg Biological Field Station offers field-based courses, research opportunities, and paid internships for undergraduate students. Scholarships and on-site housing are available. Learn more about student opportunities at KBS.

The small, field-based courses taught at KBS are a mix of classroom instruction and hands-on experience. Field courses are also available at other university-related field stations. If the station is accredited, its courses might transfer back to MSU. Ask your advisor how field courses will apply toward your major.
