Feeding the hungriest: Graduate studies in international agricultural development
UC Davis is training the next generation of scientists who are helping to find solutions to problems of global hunger and health.
Grad students in the International Agricultural Development Graduate Group benefit from an interdisciplinary program taught by some of the field’s most influential faculty as well as numerous international field opportunities for research and learning. The master’s program offers a rigorous schooling in the history and philosophy of development, leadership and management techniques, fundamentals of crop and livestock farming systems, and agricultural economics.
By advancing knowledge in agriculture, UC Davis is improving the quality of life for people around the world, especially in places that need the most help.
