Study Abroad Update
November 17, 2021
After several pandemic-related cancellations and delays we are delighted to share a number of CALS study abroad offerings. CALS faculty are teaching several courses in the upcoming winter session. Environmental science, health, and culture in Ecuador, is being led by Matt Eick (SPES) and Renee Eaton (HNFE) for the first time in several years. New this year, Tom Archibald (ALCE) is teaching youth and development in Senegal and Samantha Harden (HNFE) is offering an exploration of health, community, and yoga in a blue zone in Costa Rica.
Back this year in spring semester, Caroline Leeth (APSC) is teaching introduction to the sport horse industry in Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic. Cindy Wood (APSC) and Katharine Knowlton (DASC) are planning to offer a new course this summer, focus on animal agriculture and sustainability in Australia and New Zealand. Also this summer, Sean O'Keefe and Renee Boyer will lead FST’s practical and theoretical brewing and culture in Germany program. Looking toward the fall, Ozzie Abaye (SPES) and Mark Reiter (ESAREC) are teaching learning about Australia’s culture, agriculture, crops, and cropping systems.
Other courses on the horizon include faculty partnering with other universities to offer new courses to CALS students and a program in development with the Steger Center. If you’ve thought about offering a study abroad at some point and have questions about how to start planning, contact Ben Grove. Note that the next GEAC proposal cycle (courses planned for Winter and spring 2023) deadline for CALS is February 15 and for GEAC is March 15.
