Study Abroad

Wherever you go – whether across the state or around the world – our fundamental life needs are the same. That’s why our work knows no geographical boundaries. As a student here, you’ll have the opportunity to travel any number of places. In fact, we award a number of study-abroad scholarships to ensure more students have an international experience each year. Study-abroad opportunities have taken our students to destinations such as China, England, Ecuador, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. Your international experiences here will give you the perspectives of other cultures, expand your worldview and equip you with personal insight into the global marketplace.

France — June 1 – July 1, 2017

TOPIC: From the Farm to the Table…The Sustainable French Food System

 Students will discover facets of the French agriculture and the traditional food products “system” during one month. From production to consumers, the program will allow students to understand the “terroir” production through several angles such as history, sociology, anthropology, political, economy, science, food science, crop production and agroecology and animal production. The purpose of the program is to show to students links between agriculture, food industry and food culture with a sustainable development perspective. The program will also introduce them to the “French way of life” and to France’s role in the European Union.
