Minor in International Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources
The world is becoming increasingly complex and integrated in nearly every category of human endeavor. An understanding of how global markets, natural resources, food production, and international trade and cooperation are affected by societies, languages, cultures, and governments is an essential component of a well-rounded 21st century education in AFNR. To facilitate these studies, the multidisciplinary International AFNR Minor offers academic recognition for achieving a level of expertise in coursework of international focus.
- Fifteen credit hours (from below) are required for the minor.
- At least 6 of the 15 credit hours must be approved CAFNR courses at the 3000 or 4000 level.
- There is flexibility in choice of the remaining 6 credit hours.
- These can be (1) approved CAFNR elective courses, including study abroad, and (2) other MU courses of international focus, including foreign language, as approved by the International Education Committee.
Although the focus of this minor is not to add foreign language skills, students are strongly encouraged to invest in language to make themselves more competent in the international arena, to gain a competitive advantage for employment, and to advance their careers overall.
