Students in the Agriculture and Food Systems major can "tailor their course work to their specific interests" to focus their area of study on sustainable or organic agriculture, agricultural policy and entrepreneurship, alternative energy, community supported agriculture or other interests.
The Snyder Research and Extension Farm is the Rutgers University Center for Sustainable Agriculture. The Farm "shares the scientific resources of the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences" and provides public education to the local community. Rutgers faculty study sustainable agricultural production techniques and utilize the farm, including its certified organic land, for research and other services.
The Student Sustainable Farm is an "outdoor classroom for specialized, interdisciplinary coursework, providing unique opportunities, hands-on experience, and research opportunities for students." Additionally, the farm focuses on organic production and community involvement, provides summer internships, offers an 8-week summer course on organic farming, and runs a CSA program.
