ANSC 49400 - Animals And Food Security: International Services Learning
Credit Hours: 1.00 to 4.00. This course prepares students for a service learning international experience and includes the planning of the trip, the actual trip and a reflective learning post-trip class. The course is a partnership between Purdue Animal Sciences, a host university and their students, a local community organization, and an international community development, NGO. The core of the experience is the faculty-led international service learning course where students live and work in villages in a developing country. Students will learn extension methodologies and how to contribute to sustainable projects. Students will be expected to work in bi-national teams across agricultural and community disciplines to not only contribute to the communities served but to apply their classroom knowledge and experience to make a difference in the community. AGEC 43000 (Introduction To World Agricultural Development) is a highly recommended prerequisite. Prerequisites: Multicultural Awareness course (COA list). Permission of instructor required. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
