|Description:||Students enter this specialization because they want to acquire a global understanding of agriculture as a central mechanism to help rural development, alleviate poverty and reach food security, especially in the developing world. This program provides students with coursework and a semester hands-on experience in a developing country (students must cover their costs), meeting locals and attending courses with McGill professors and/or local instructors. The field semester includes developing projects in local communities, observing subsistence agriculture in situ and participating in social activities which contribute to sensitize the students to the development challenges that such countries face.
What better way to study the practice of agriculture in a tropical setting than by going to a tropical destination? In Africa, or in Panama, or in Barbados! Students will learn about water resources, sustainable development, nutrition, planning and development, and a host of other fascinating topics, allowing them to sharpen their skills for career opportunities ahead.
