"Agroecology is the science behind sustainable agriculture linking social, environmental, and economic perspectives in agriculture. Students completing this program gain an understanding of sustainable agricultural systems from local and global farming examples; obtain new skills in analyzing agricultural systems from a multi-disciplinary and integrated approach to develop creative and sustainable solutions for food systems and enhance their ability to obtain new and diverse sustainable careers in food and agricultural systems. The Agroecology minor is open to all baccalaureate students. It is designed for students majoring in Biological Sciences, Plant & Soil Sciences, Horticultural Science and Animal Science, but will be of interest to a wide array of students as agriculture has broad implications in the life sciences, economics, and sociology."
