Why study agriculture abroad?

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.  Making an international experience part of a UW-Platteville degree can help students 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.


Programs recommended by the School of Agriculture

The School of Agriculture has not identified any recommended programs for their students.  Students can ask their academic advisors if they have any recommended programs and/or courses based on their personal or other advisees' experiences abroad.
