INTD 360 - World’s Views: Globalization, Environment, Agricultural Economy


This course is rooted in environmental science and focuses on the issue of land use change on global climate and environmental sustainability. There are obvious connections with other disciplines and fields, including global sustainability, food production, business, economics, and social science. Students who will participate in this course should expect to learn the connection between the soil system, vegetation and the atmosphere at the local and global scale. The business component of land use change is evident. Many multinational companies have an interest in available productive land for their crop production and their activity is driven by local and especially global demand. The course will be experiential, meaning that students will learn from on site visits and direct interaction with actual players in the field of sustainability and land use. Participants will be exposed to research work conducted in the area.
