Agrology is the profession of applying science and scientific principles to the business and art of agriculture. In British Columbia, agrology is recognized by the provincial statute of 1948, the Agrologists Act, under which the BC Institute of Agrologists (BCIA) (www.bcia.com) is incorporated.
A graduate of the Faculty holding a Bachelor of Science in Agroecology, Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology, Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition, and Health, or a Bachelor of Science in Global Resource Systems meets the educational requirements for membership in the BCIA.
A graduate who plans to practise as an agrologist in the province of British Columbia is expected to register as a member of the BCIA. Applications should be forwarded to the Registrar, BCIA.
