The goal of Rural Development offered by Agrocampus Ouest  is to train professionals that contribute to solving socio-economic, natural resource and agricultural challenges in rural communities.


The Agrocampus Ouest  multi-disciplinary approach, the comparative study of EU and non-EU models, a flexible study programme and the unique mobility requirements stimulate students to gain a wide perspective of Rural Development and build an international network.


The internship gives students the opportunity to carry out practical specialized work in a domain of their interest. The subject of the internship placement has to have a link with rural development, agricultural economics or rural sociology. This can be both in an academic or a professional environment. The internship allows students to apply skills learned during the programme in a real world context to better prepare them for the job market.
