Sustainable Agriculture Minor

Sustainable Argicutlure

This minor allows students to study the sustainability of agricultural food systems from an integrated perspective, including coursework, practical experience, and community reflection.

Required courses—and courses from the foundational clusters—define this minor's curriculum. These courses cover topics such as public policy; agriculture, environment and natural resources; and citizens, science, and society.

Each student in this minor will also work with the minor adviser to design an individualized practical experience in some aspect of sustainable agriculture (e.g., an internship or experiential learning activity.).

In the student-led seminar series, "What’s Up in Sustainable Agriculture" (WUSA) and the senior capstone, students synthesize their learning about sustainability for local, national, and global agricultural food systems.

All minor requirements must be taken A-F (unless only offered S/N), and students must earn a grade of at least C- in each course in the minor.
