Two horticulture courses have international learning experiences built into the curriculum:
- Hort 374: Tropical Horticulture is a two-credit, fall semester discussion-based course, with a 2-week field study in Costa Rica over January break.
- LACIS 440: Organic Agriculture Colloquium is a spring semester course with a 9-day spring break study abroad program in Costa Rica, led by Professor Jim Nienhuis from the Department of Horticulture
Check out photos from the Spring 2013 Organic Agriculture trip to Costa Rica here.
Horticulture majors are also encouraged to take advantage of the longer study abroad experiences offered through the CALS International Programs Office or the Office of International Academic Programs.
