BSc (AgEnvSci) INTERNATIONAL AGRICULTURE AND FOOD SYSTEMS MAJOR
Students enter the program to acquire a global understanding of agriculture as a fundamental tool in strengthening rural development, alleviating malnutrition, reducing poverty and addressing food security, especially in the developing world.
The program provides students with a combination of coursework at McGill together with hands-on experience in a developing country. The field experience (short course, internship or full semester) includes project development in local communities, observing subsistence agriculture in situ and participating in various activities which aim at sensitizing students to the challenges that face developing countries.
The IAFS Major combines theoretical and applied courses in agriculture from the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences with economic and social science courses offered on the downtown Montreal Campus, thus preparing students for the many challenges related to solving the food problems of the world.
