The Agricultural and Consumer Sciences department aims to provide our students with a wide variety of opportunities to study abroad. Students are encouraged to participate in at least one study abroad experience prior to graduation in order to acquire a global perspective.
While abroad, students engage in hands-on experiences and activities. The interaction between students, professionals, and the local population is a rich way to promote exchange of information and lifetime learning.
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.
