Agriculture, environment and sustainability
Our agriculture, environment and sustainability courses examine how we interact with, manage and protect the living world. Our planet needs highly educated and creative people to maintain our environment, while still providing the necessary resources for our ever-increasing human population. You can study ways to manage the risks associated with seasons, climate change and global warming, or prepare for a career in agribusiness and learn how to farm and produce food and wine.
