Ecological Agriculture: Ecological Agriculture students are interested in diversified agriculture systems that include horticultural and agronomic crops. Ecology is the uniting thread that integrates the course-work and ties the curriculum together. The program is based in UVMs Plant and Soil Science Department, where faculty advisors help students select courses and develop learning experiences that match their interests and career goals.
All students who enroll in the major must complete the basic core curriculum for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), which includes courses in communications and technology. In addition students complete courses within the program, such as plant biology, ecology, plant and soil science, economics, and policy. Summer course offerings provide students experience during the Vermont growing season.
