Trinidad & Tobago: Exploring Agricultural Issues in the Caribbean Students will examine the role of agriculture and extension in influencing the prevailing agricultural economy in Trinidad. We will explore various government, NGOs (and indigenous projects that are actively engaged in the country and region’s agricultural activities. In order to understand the context of these developing systems students will explore commercial and emerging farms, youth projects, and research stations. The course focuses on agriculture in Trinidad, but students will have a chance to see how this nation is influencing agricultural policy and production on a regional level through multinational organizations and universities based in the country. PSU students (graduate or undergraduate) can earn up to 4 hours of in-residence credit. Maymester courses are part of PSU spring registration, although they occur immediately following the spring semester.
