Students are regularly encouraged to gain research experience overseas through access to programs of study in France and Brazil. Our unique exchange programs include a program with a grand ecole in France and with two universities in Brazil.
These opportunities allow students to take courses and conduct research as part of their regular Penn State graduate program. In addition, dual-title graduate degrees are offered to provide international credentials to our students.
Dual Title Offerings
The Department participates in two dual-title programs that provide international education, experience and authentication.
The Comparative and International Education Program offers a dual title through the College of Education . The dual-title degree program is offered through participating graduate programs in the College of Education and, where appropriate, other graduate programs at Penn State. The option enables students from different graduate programs to learn the perspectives, techniques, and methodologies of comparative and international education, while maintaining a close association with their program areas of application.

Starting in 2011, the College of Agricultural Sciences will offer a dual title graduate degree program called International Agriculture and Development (INTAD). The goal of INTAD is to provide a new curriculum at the Master’s and Ph.D. levels that complements a student's primary discipline with documented knowledge and experience in their discipline’s application to global agriculture and development.
Faculty within the Department of Entomology have research and extension projects on most continents around the world.
The SUStainable Crop PROTection in Agriculture Program recently allowed graduate and undergraduate students to spend time in one of four institutes in Western Europe and to gain a global perspective on sustainable agriculture. These international experiences established many professional relationships, helped develop graduate student research techniques, and fostered ongoing associations with faculty and labs.
