Study Abroad opens a world of opportunities for CALS students. It immerses a student into an unfamiliar world with different cultures, languages, and environments. It helps students become more marketable to employers and provides numerous intangible life skills. It also teaches students to appreciate and embrace diversity firsthand. A survey by the Institute for the International Education of Students found that study abroad positively and unequivocally influences the career path, world-view, and self-confidence of students.
Consider adding value to your CALS degree with an International Studies in Agiculture Minor.
