Dale Bumpers College of Agriculture Global Studies Program
2004 Heiskell Award Honorable Mention: Study Abroad
Nomination submitted by: Dr. Preston La Ferney, Director of International Agricultural Programs
The Global Studies Program (GSP) is a study abroad innovation designed to strengthen international education through uniquely designed (tailor-made) study and research programs to meet the individual needs of each student. GSP has quickly generated tremendous student interest in global issues and study abroad and has already spawned a new undergraduate course in Global Studies, a new undergraduate minor in Global Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, and a new, one-year Transatlantic MS in Agribusiness conducted jointly with Scotland’s National College for Food, Land and Environmental Studies.
