American farmers sell their products worldwide, and techniques and research are shared around the world. Agriculture is a global field which requires an understanding of how factors such as economics, food safety and security, and sustainability affect the industry both locally and internationally.

Why Study Agriculture Abroad?

Making an international experience part of a University of Wisconsin-Platteville degree can help you gain a broader perspective of the challenges facing farmers, researchers, scientists, and other agriculture professionals around the globe by living in another culture and agricultural context.

Upon graduation, having international experience on a resume can also help distinguish applicants in the competitive job market. It can help demonstrate a global perspective of the field and real-world issues, flexibility and adaptability, and knowledge of and openness to other cultures.

Where Agriculture Majors Have Studied

Recommended Programs

The UW-Platteville Education Abroad office recommends agriculture students study abroad through the AERES University of Applied Sciences in Dronten, Netherlands.

This is an exchange program in which UW-Platteville students pay UW-Platteville tuition, even while studying in a different country.

You can also get hands-on experience abroad in Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs.
