What will I learn?

In collaboration with Fleming College, the specialization in Applied Agriculture is perfect for students in the Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems B.A. or B.Sc. program who are new to farming and seek an intensive, applied learning experience in sustainable, ecological or natural farming methods. This unique opportunity also includes a 21-week hands-on co-op farm experience.

Students admitted to the program register as fulltime Fleming students in the Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture, beginning in January following the fall term of the last year of their SAFS program. Students who complete the three-semester graduate certificate with a minimum average of 70% will receive 3.0 elective credits towards their Trent Honours degree.

The Trent University academic transcripts of students completing the Sustainable Agriculture graduate certificate program with an average of at least 65% in courses taken at Trent and 70% in courses taken at Fleming will contain the notation “with a Specialization in Applied Agriculture.” Graduates will also receive an Ontario College Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture from Fleming College.
