119.290 National Expedition: Agriculture and Environment (15 credits)

A study tour examining the interactions between agriculture, horticulture and environment through a series of field visits to selected agriculture, horticulture and environment systems in New Zealand. The course uses a case study and portfolio approach to develop reflective, critical, and analytical thinking on key primary industries, the New Zealand environment, and the associated interactions.

Note(s): In 2018 the offering will start on April 15 (Stream site open and pre-visit activities) with the Expedition running from 28 May to 10 June, and the final assessment due on 15 June – this timing has been selected to fit with the North America semesters. Timing for the Study Abroad programme may vary from year to year but will probably be the more-or-less equivalent weeks to the 2018 dates. A minimum of 15 students is required for the course to proceed.
