This is the VOA Special English Education Report.

这里是 VOA 慢速英语的教育报道。

In the United States, the area of study with the fewest international students is agriculture. The number was about nine thousand during the last school year. More than ten times as many studied business or engineering.

在美国,留学生学习人数最少的学课是农业。上一个学年人数大约是 9000 人。学习经济和工程的学生超过它的 10 倍还多。

But the crop of foreign students in agriculture and natural resources was twenty percent bigger than the year before. The Institute of International Education in New York says that was the biggest increase of any area of study. So this week in our Foreign Student Series we look at agriculture programs in the United States.

但是学习农业和自然资源的学生比前一年增加了 20% 。纽约国际教育学院说农业是其它学课里增长最快的。所以这周的留学生系列我们关注美国的农业课程。

About one hundred colleges and universities began as public agricultural schools and continue to teach agriculture. These are known as land-grant schools.

大约 100 所高等院校开始于公立农业学校,并断续教授农业科学。以此著名的有 Land-grant 学校。

In eighteen sixty-two, Congress passed legislation that gave thousands of hectares to each state. States were to sell the land and use the money to establish colleges to teach agriculture, engineering and military science. A congressman from Vermont, Justin Smith Morrill, wrote the legislation.

1820 年,国会通过立法给每州划分数千公顷的土地。各州用卖了土地的钱创办了教授农业科学,工程技术和军事技术的学院。法律条文是由佛蒙特的国会议员 Justin Smith Morrill 编写的。

The state of Michigan already had an agricultural college. But that college was the first to officially agree to receive support under the Morrill Act . It grew into what is now Michigan State University in East Lansing.

密西根州已有一所农学院。但是这所学院是第一个在莫里尔法案官方认可得到支持的学院。它就是现在东兰辛的米歇根州立大学。

Today, Michigan State has more than forty thousand students. More than four thousand of them are international students. They come from one hundred twenty-five countries.

今天,米歇根州立大学有超过 4 万名学生。留学生超过 4000 名。他们来自于 125 个国家。

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at Michigan State University offers sixty programs of study. Richard Brandenburg is the associate dean for graduate programs. He says foreign agriculture students this year are from countries including Japan, the Netherlands, Rwanda, El Salvador, Turkey, Sri Lanka and India.

米歇根州立大学的农业和自然资源学院提供 60 门学习课程。 Richard Brandenburg 是研究院课程的副主任。他说今年的国外农业学生来自于包括日本,荷兰,卢旺达,萨尔瓦多,土耳其,斯里兰卡,印度在内的国家。

In all, the college has four hundred thirty-three foreign students in East Lansing. It also has eleven students at a campus in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. The only agriculture program currently offered in Dubai is construction management.

总之,在东兰辛学院有 433 名留学生。在阿联酋迪拜学院还有 11 名。施工管理是目前在迪拜唯一提供的农业课程。

Michigan State opened its Dubai campus in August. It has only about fifty students now, but the university says it has received about ninety applications for admission this fall. We'll talk more about foreign campuses of American universities next week.

米歇根州在 8 月开办迪拜学院。目前只有 50 名学生,但是学校说他们已收到大约 90 份今年秋天的入学申请表。 我们下一周会讨论更多美国大学的外国校院。
