Herbert Summer courses. These courses are normally about three weeks in duration and students earn from one to three hours credit. There are great experiences for learning about agriculture and/or natural resources in another country, while also being introduced to different culture. In Herbert led programs, a Herbert faculty member has designed and will teach the course. The courses include:

  • The Landscapes and Gardens of the UK and Ireland​​ with Professors Brad Collett and Garry Menendez. See and study and beautiful gardens and cities of the world to better understand the role they play in society and the cultural landscape. mem@utk.edu
