This minor is an interdisciplinary program of study designed to enable students to (1) gain an awareness and appreciation for the interrelationship and interdependency of the nations of the world for their food and fiber; (2) gain an awareness of the resources available to solve problems in international agriculture; and (3) recognize systems of learning transfer and understand the impact of technological transfer across cultures.
This minor may be combined with any undergraduate major in the University. It requires 18 credits in addition to the baccalaureate degree and departmental major requirements of the student's choice.
