for the International Minor in Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences

This minor will help students prepare for life and work in a global society and will provide the international skills employers expect of our graduates. While it is the intent of this minor to encourage students to spend time abroad and to develop proficiency in a foreign language, neither is required.

At least 12 of the total 21 credit hours required for this minor must be College of ACES courses. At least 6 credit hours (ACES or non-ACES) must come from 400-level courses. Courses in the minor cannot be completed Credit/No Credit.
