The Certificate in International Agriculture and Trade (CITA) is designed to provide students in agricultural economics and agribusiness with a more complete knowledge and understanding of the global forces shaping change in agriculture. The CITA is also available to students in other disciplines provided that all prerequisites are met.
The program requires a minimum of 15 credit hours in designated courses. Either AGEC 452 (International Trade and Agriculture) or AGEC 453 (International Agribusiness Marketing) is required. (AGEC 453 has been previously taught as AGEC 489 – International Agribusiness Marketing and will be substituted for AGEC 453.)
Study abroad, foreign languages, and international internships are encouraged and allowed to contribute toward the 15 hours required for the certificate. No more than six (6) hours of foreign language or six (6) hours of study abroad or six (6) hours of international internship may be counted as credit toward the certificate.
The remaining 12 hours must be taken from any combination of the courses listed on the CITA Form. (NOTE: Prerequisites do not count toward the 15 credit hour requirement.)
