O que eu aprenderei?

Agricultural Studies delves into the relationships between the social, economic, political and environmental factors that affect the agricultural sector, from farm level production to international policy.

The Agricultural Studies post-diploma program is directed toward graduates of approved two-year college diplomas in Agriculture. Graduates of other diploma programs in Agriculture will also be considered. This unique program focuses on both the art and the science of agricultural practices from theoretical and applied perspectives, including extensive lab experience and a special emphasis on current issues and cutting-edge research.

As an agricultural studies student, you will develop an expansive breadth and depth of knowledge in all things agriculture. Firmly grounded in the humanities and natural and social sciences, this liberal education approach ensures comprehensive, multi-faceted exposure to the study of agriculture and agri-food.

As a multidisciplinary major, Agricultural Studies takes full advantage resources and course offerings in the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Geography and Economics.

This broad range of perspectives will expand your understanding of issues such as policy development, the farm as a production unit and the environmental implications of land use. You’ll also be exposed to the latest developments in genetic engineering, precision farming and animal nutrition, to name just a few.

Possible Careers

In addition to developing exceptional communication skills, you will develop critical and analytical problem-solving skills, as well as research and information management skills. You will also improve your attention to detail, increasing your ability to read and discern important yet subtle differences in information. You will leave the program with a strong ability to summarize research findings, excellent fieldwork and risk assessment techniques, as well as in-depth knowledge of agricultural issues.
