Degrees and Programs
The Urban Ag concentration is intended for students who live in urban and suburban environments to increase skills in food productivity and storage as well as general knowledge and care of the living world around them. Through this program students will not only be better stewards of their space but also have a higher level of consumer literacy for their agricultural-based foods. There will be a focus on growing in small spaces, using regenerative practices, and exploring the connections in a biodiverse world. This cross-over field will pull information from Agriculture, Horticulture, Agribusiness, and Animal Science.
As in all Northeast agricultural concentrations, courses in business management, agricultural records, marketing, and the use of computers are included in the program of study.
Add value to your current operation or become an entrepreneur through knowledge and skills gained in the Urban Agriculture program. Learning how to create ecological production systems, increasing biodiversity as well as your economic diversity can bring additional income to existing operations and create new opportunities.
Salaries vary depending on chosen occupation and location.
