France: Food Production, Culture and the Environment
About the Program
During their stay in Toulouse, students experience first-hand food production and environmental stewardship, French culture, and European agriculture. Students will study a variety of topics at the Ècole Nationale Supèrieure Agronomiqe de Toulouse (ENSAT), a part of the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse. All of the courses are taught in English and students will learn basic “survival skills” during a French class at ENSAT.
Students will participate in a lecture and field trip for the following segments:
- French language, history and culture
- Cheese making
- Wine making
- Olive Production
- Environmental science
- Animal and poultry science
- Ag Economics and European Policy
- French Agricultural systems
Upon returning, students have gained knowledge and an appreciation for French culture, as well as a global view of agriculture that makes them more marketable to employers.
