What will I learn?

The BSc (AgEnvSc) is offered on our beautiful Macdonald Campus, located in the picturesque town of Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, on the western tip of the Island of Montreal. The campus is spread over 1600 acres of land containing research facilities, bike paths, an arboretum with walking and ski trails, working farm, greenhouses and much more. When you are not in class, you can spend time exploring all the west island has to offer. A free intercampus shuttle and good public transit links means the thriving metropolis of Montreal is also just a 40 minute bus or car ride away.

Over the course of three years (U1, U2 and U3), students will complete a 90-credit degree. For students from high schools outside Quebec, a 30-credit freshman year (called U0) will be added at the start of your studies (making this a four-year, 120-credit degree).

Program Requirements

This Major is focused on the idea that agricultural landscapes are managed ecosystems, and that humans engaged in agriculture must maintain the highest possible environmental standards while providing food and other bioproducts to the marketplace. The Major core focuses on the basic and applied biology of cultivated plants, domestic animals, arable soils, and the economics of agriculture. Students then choose one or two specializations in these or connected disciplines that reflect their interests and career goals.

The program has a strong field component that includes hands-on laboratories, visits to agricultural enterprises, and opportunities for internships. Classes and laboratories exploit the unique setting and facilities of the Macdonald Campus and Farm, which is a fully functioning farm in an urban setting that exemplifies many of the issues at the forefront of modern agricultural production. Graduates of this program are eligible to become members of the Ordre des agronomes du Québec (OAQ).
