This undergraduate minor is designed to prepare students for service abroad, primarily in the less developed countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, in such organizations as the Peace Corps, the U.S. Agency for International Development, or any of a number faith-based or non-governmental international charities and missions. The minor emphasizes practical applications of resource and environmental management skills in both rural and urban settings. With its corresponding graduate-level courses, it is also useful preparation for students from both the U.S. and abroad hoping to pursue graduate research in less developed nations.
