About:
AGSD 4390 - Prague Travel (Undergraduate), ACRS 5390 Travel Seminar (Graduate)
The study tour will provide an integrated view of the rich cultural, agricultural, historical, technological, economic, communications and religious nuances of Central Europe. The program includes a weekend trip to Krakow, Poland and an additional weekend for individual/small group excursions.

This course will provide students with a unique international experience emphasizing agricultural and societal issues in post-communist central Europe. Students will be exposed to the history, culture, economy and current issues of the Czech Republic and neighboring countries. The program leaders will use a combination of experience, lectures, discussions, readings, and research to convey the course materials. Students completing the course will:
  • Broaden their understanding of agricultural policy
  • Discover how international companies operate in different environments
  • Learn about the impact of cultural differences on the structure of agriculture and compare central Europe with the U.S.
  • Deepen their understanding of the development of civilization and culture and the importance of agriculture development
  • Recognize the elements of U.S. culture that have roots in Central Europe, and particularly the Czech Republic
Finally, experiencing a blend of language, history, art, culture and government will internationally and culturally enrich each student.
