Jason Holcomb has been at MSU since 2000 and has taught a wide variety of classes since his arrival.  He grew up on a farm in Iowa and earned his degrees at the University of Kansas and Kansas State University.  His primary research interests include migration, land use, cultural geography, the Great Plains, and grassland environments.  He recently spent a sabbatical ding an oral history project with custom wheat harvesters of the Great Plains, funded by grants from Morehead State and the Kansas Humanities Council.  This involved travel to Minnesota, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma to interview both current and retired custom harvesters.  He is also researching international labor employed in custom harvesting and other American agribusinesses.  He enjoys traveling anywhere, but typically heads west when the opportunity comes along

"MSU provided me with such an enriching experience. I began my journey four years before college as a participant in Trio's Upward Bound and was even placed on MSU's campus for my time in the Governor's Scholar Program. After so much time on this campus, and hearing great things about the Foreign Language programs, MSU already felt like home and the obvious choice for furthering my education. Once here I realized I was right and I met many new people and learned many valuable lessons. To MSU, I say gracias, merci, grazie and thank you for everything."
