To help meet the demand for graduates with international skills, Purdue University's Department of Forestry and Natural Resources has teamed with the Sveriges Lantbruks Universitet (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) to offer a jointly taught, four-week summer course that brings together Swedish and American faculty and students. Alternately taught in the United States and Sweden, the course includes lectures on international resources issues, an extended field tour, team projects, leadership training, and communications practice.
