Study Abroad in France next Summer!! - Apply Now:
May 17 - June 14, 2014
Toulouse and Paris, France
France is the European leader in agriculture.  However, French agriculture is constantly facing new challenges and has undergone major changes.  France is known worldwide for the quality of its food and its specialty products and luxury beverages.  The objective of these courses is to teach Aggies about the French Food Production Systems, to learn how geography, politics, heritage and history play a role in shaping the future of French agriculture, and to contrast this with food productions systems in Texas and the world.  These courses will offer students a chance to experience French culture and way of life to enhance students’ views on international agriculture.  During the second part of the program, students will spend several days based in Paris, taking excursions to visit the gardens of a number of French châteaux.  Learn more here.
A total of 6 credit hours are offered for this program.  Students will enroll in the following courses:
  • ENTO/HORT 489: Special Topics in Food Production Systems in France
