This course provides an international perspective on animal management, conservation and various animal-related industries by allowing students to study abroad in various locations around the world, with different destinations offered each academic year. Credit hours are variable based on length of travel and classroom instruction pre- and post-travel consistent with NCSU policies and practices. Course may be repeated for credit to visit different destinations only. Significant expenses for travel are involved. Please consult with the instructor or the Study Abroad Office for specific program details.

We have offered several special topics courses associated with Study Abroad, with several being offered more than 2 times. Therefore we would like to establish a Study Abroad ANS course where the student learning outcomes remain the same but the location of the experience can change.
