ATLANTIS considers as European students citizens of the European Union or third-country nationals who had been legal residents in the European Union for at least three years (and for the purpose other than study) before the start of the outgoing mobility. Eligible U.S. students and faculty must be U.S. citizens or permanent resident.
The double degree in Rural Development and Agricultural Economics offers the opportunity to study the European and US vision on rural development in its diversity of approaches and applications.
The objective is to train specialists in comparative analysis of EU and US agricultural and rural development policies through a 2 year master program (120 ECTS) jointly organised by 5 EU and 2 US leading institutes in agricultural economics and rural development.
The joint Master is offered by Ghent University (Belgium), Agrocampus Rennes (France), Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany), the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra (Slovakia) and the University of Pisa (Italy). The US partners are the University of Arkansas and University of Florida.
The methodology consists of a combination of basic and specialised training in technical, economic and social sciences, a case study of one month, an individual master thesis and a high extent of student and scholar mobility.
