Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Learning experience in one of the six majors in the Agricultural Institute that utilizes facilities and resources external to the campus. Students can choose from multiple external learning experiences. Students who complete an external learning experience will have a unique opportunity to put to practice the skills and knowledge they have learned in the classroom in an external setting.

The revision for this course was necessary to standardize and streamline requirements for students completing the external learning experience. As more students begin to complete these external learning experiences, the course needed to be revised for all AGI majors.
