The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences have more students who participate in education abroad programs than any other college at The Ohio State University. Students can participate in an education abroad program that is associated with the Department of Agricultural Communication, Education, and Leadership and led by two of our agricultural communication faculty.
The Agricultural and Environmental Communication education abroad program travels to England and Scotland. This course engages students in concentrated study of selected prominent English food and agricultural issues and the ways through which mass media communicate with and educate the public about these issues. One particular interest in the course are the ways in which British media both differ from and resemble U.S. media in their coverage of a wide range of social and technical issues associated with food and agriculture, such as land use issues, foot and mouth disease, organic food production, local food systems and dairy cattle diseases.
This program will travel again in May 2021.
ACEL students are also able to participate in other education abroad programs offered through the CFAES Office of Education Abroad or the Ohio State Office of International Affairs.
