The Agricultural and Consumer Sciences department aims to provide students from all options the opportunity to study abroad in a developing country. Students are encouraged to participate at least once before their graduation in order to acquire a global perspective on agricultural and human issues.
Study abroad programs are usually a component of classes offered during the summer semesters. In the past few years, students have had the opportunity to visit countries such as Thailand, Costa Rica, Brazil, Croatia, Ethiopia, Nambia, and the Czech Republic.
While abroad students are engaged in hands on experiences and activities. The interaction between students and farmers is a rich way to promote exchange of information and lifetime learning.
