The Bachelor of Science in Agroecology is no longer offered. Students interested in these areas of study are referred to the Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology program.

Agroecology is the science of applying ecological concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable agroecosystems. This discipline brings together the elements of agricultural sciences, ecology, and environmental thought and is influenced by the experiences of people who manage land and water to produce food and other products. The Agroecology program is committed to providing an agricultural education that integrates disciplinary knowledge within a framework of ecological principles. It provides students with the flexibility to tailor their learning experiences to prepare for a wide range of careers with varying specializations, including animal studies, pre-veterinary medicine, horticulture, soils and environment, resource economics, and sustainable agriculture.
