Course info

Summary

“Global food and agriculture challenges are complex, and not solved by a single discipline.” Dr. Michelle Schroeder-Moreno explains how the brand new Crop and Soil Sciences major, Bachelor of Science in Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems came to be. “It’s cross departmental with Horticulture—a true multi-disciplinary degree. The resources and expertise of both departments provides students with something more.”

Agriculture is in general, a declining population. It’s less than one per cent of the nation’s population, and everybody has to be included in the solution. “It’s a goal to diversify the student population…to include more women and underrepresented minorities. Looking at farming and urban agriculture, 50% more women are in core classes now, and we have a good mix both ag and non-ag background.”
