International Agriculture Minor - ARCHIVE

University Park, College of Agricultural Sciences (INTAG)

PROFESSOR THOMAS H. BRUENING, in charge

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. Some courses require prerequisites not included in the minor. Foreign language competence is highly recommended. A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.

Students may apply for admission to the minor by completing and submitting an application for admission to a minor to 323 Agriculture Administration Building, University Park Campus. Approval from the student's major program adviser also is required. For more information, contact Dr. Thomas H. Bruening, 323 Agriculture Administration Building, (814) 863-7069.
