  This course introduces students to the global economy and emphasizes the significance and implications of government policies for trade in various commodities.  Specifically, students will learn about various trade theories and develop an intuitive understanding of the theoretical foundations of the economics of international agricultural trade.  Furthermore, the course would familiarize students with current issues and methods used in the analysis of international agricultural trade.

Traditional lectures and Problem-based Learning (PBL) techniques and tools will be used in communicating important concepts and ideas in this course. The PBL section of the course will focus on the impact of agricultural trade policy on environmental policy and practice in developed and developing countries. The PBL sessions will include group-based activities such as problem solving, role-playing, debates, discussions, writing assignments, and in-class presentations.
