This program will introduce students to fundamental principles and practices of sustainable agricultural development. Students will visit CIMMYT in the Valley of Mexico where Nobel Peace Prize winner and Father of the Green Revolution, Dr. Norman Borlaug, developed wheat varieties and production practices that ultimately saved a billion people from starvation. The program will then move to San Miguel de Allende in the Mexican Central Highlands at the new Hacienda
Santa Clara. While there, students will engage in service learning programs and take an active role in developing sustainable food production systems. Throughout the course, there will be a strong integration of Hispanic cultural experiences.
A total of 3 credit hours are offered for this program. An honors section of the below course will be offered as well.
