Sustainable Agriculture and Environment in Nicaragua: Seminar
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg
Nicaragua is rebuilding its agricultural economy to address multiple goals including reducing poverty, improving food security, as well as decreasing impacts from climate change and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. The historical, political and social context will be discussed and perspectives will be provided from representatives from diverse groups including farm workers, farm owners, women, and indigenous peoples. Students will see differences between the US and Nicaragua, and in turn, will identify structures that cause those differences.
This course is a prerequisite and companion to a winter-term study abroad course, ANSC372, in Nicaragua. For General Education credit, both ANSC371 and ANSC372 must be completed.
