Learn about European agricultural and animal production economics on this eight-week summer program in Toulouse. Take part in multiple cultural excursions to the surrounding countryside and neighboring cities. Complete a four-week internship working on a French farm or at a French agri-business and put your learning into real-world practice.
Toulouse is a fusion between past and present; it is home to France's aviation industry and has been part of numerous technological advances, yet still maintains a historic feel from its past as an ancient Roman settlement. The reddish-pink brick of the buildings give the city its unofficial name: la ville rose, or "the pink city."
Participants enroll in a total of 6 credits for the eight-week program. The first four weeks of this program consist of several on-campus courses, including the following:
- European Culture and Agriculture Economics
- European Animal Production and Economics
- French Courses
- Food science option
- Viticulture & Enology option
Program participants then travel to a four-week placement in July on a farm or within an agriculture-related business for an immersive internship experience. Each student's knowledge and prior experience is taken into account to find the most appropriate internship placement, with each placement catering to that student's particular skills. A one-day on-campus debriefing will occur on the final day of the program.
