International Agriculture Minor

Food systems, agriculture and environmental ecosystems are international in nature. They bridge national borders, cross cultures, and influence regional and global economics. The International Agriculture minor provides an international perspective to students in majors related to agriculture, food, or the environment.

You must develop your program in coordination with the minor coordinator with assistance from CFANS International Programs. Students must complete 18 credits with a minimum GPA of 2.00.

International Agriculture Minor

There are four main components to the International Agriculture minor program:

  1. A general overview of international agriculture (3 cr)

  2. Culture or language studies (3 cr)

  3. Expanded coursework in agriculture (9 cr)

  4. An academic, international experience where students are required to travel outside the United States for a minimum of two-weeks (3 cr)

All minor requirements must be taken A-F (unless only offered S/N), and students must earn a grade of at least C- in each course in the minor. If you have questions or wish to pursue the International Agriculture minor, please contact the Minor Coordinator listed below.
