At the core of the INTAD program is the INTAD 820 course.

INTAD 820: International Agriculture and Development Seminar

Each seminar session is led by professors from different departments with multiple international experiences and expertise in subject matter and process skills. The focus of this course will change annually to reflect issues in the global arena and faculty interests and expertise. In particular, this course will emphasize analytical thinking and application of knowledge. Students will be challenged to integrate knowledge gained in other classes and to develop an ability to translate and transfer this information into an international context.

International Experiential Learning Opportunity

The residential portion of the course will be complemented by an overseas experiential learning opportunity for students in the program. This international portion will introduce students to places that are most likely to shape the critical issues in the foreseeable future – food security, food safety, economic development and climate change.

Funding for INTAD 820

The INTAD program faculty and administration will make every effort to help students identify and apply for funding to help cover some of the associated travel expenses. Note: students should be prepared to pay a portion of the travel expenses at the beginning of the semester.
