California State University, Stanislaus
Agricultural Studies B.A. Concentration in Sustainable Agriculture
The Bachelor of Arts in Agricultural Studies is a multidisciplinary program that blends the contributions of a number of academic departments through upper division core courses and four concentrations: Agricultural Biology, Agricultural Business / Economics, Permaculture, and a special concentration. The program encourages students to explore diverse approaches to agricultural production, distribution, and management in evolving economic and environmental settings. Experiential learning and applied research opportunities are offered through these concentrations.
The major fosters sustainable relationships with area community colleges through the implementation of a "2+2" program design. Individuals who have an A.S. degree or equivalent lower-division course work in Agriculture, Agricultural Science, Agricultural Economics and closely related fields, and who complete the designated lower-division prerequisite courses, may participate in the program. Individuals currently employed will be admitted contingent on their completion of course requirements.
Sustainable Agriculture is a design approach for agroecosystems. With a focus on long-term sustainability, it emphasizes ecological principles and diversity of plant and animal combinations suited to the characteristics of places and cultures. As such, it is appropriate for students who are concerned with resources issues, agriculture, community development, and land use planning.
