Scotland: Youth Engagement in Agriculture

Explore Scotland and practice your training in education in the same trip.

Please note: if you wish to be considered for the CAES International Travel Scholarship, you must apply for this scholarship by Nov. 1. Please apply by this deadline regardless of whether you have received your acceptance for the Scotland study abroad program.

About the Program

Through this course, students will lead elementary school lessons in agriculture; implement service-learning projects in Athens, Georgia, and Dumfries, Scotland; and expand their worldviews.

This nine-day adventure, held over spring break, is the culmination of a spring course that addresses student engagement in the agricultural and environmental sciences. Through a partnership with Dumfries schools and University of Glasgow Dumfries Campus faculty and students, college students will work in teams to engage elementary students in agricultural lessons.

University of Georgia students will travel to London and Scotland’s Edinburgh, Inverness and Dumfries to implement service-learning projects and participate in academic and cultural events. They’ll build school gardens at Troqueer Primary School, design and introduce lessons and teaching resources related to agriculture and the environment,

and share their experiences through print or digital media. Of course, they’ll also experience Scottish food, entertainment and culture.
