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.
A student who wishes to pursue an International AFNR Minor should visit with the advisor for this minor, Dr. Laura McCann, early in his/her college career.
- Fifteen credit hours are required for the International AFNR Minor.
- At least 9 of the 15 hours must be approved CAFNR courses at the 3000 or 4000 level.
- There is flexibility in choice of the other 6 hours.
- These can be (1) approved CAFNR elective courses, including study abroad, (2) other MU courses of international focus, including foreign language, if approved by the student's academic advisor and the International AFNR Minor advisor, (3) independent research with a faculty member if approved by the student's academic advisor and the International AFNR Minor advisor.
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.
