Ecological Agriculture (ECAG) is a degree that provides a foundation in the natural sciences with an emphasis on the application of ecological principles to the production of horticultural or agronomic crops. Disciplinary synthesis is attained through advanced courses in soils, plant pathology, entomology, and integrated farm management. Students are prepared to become practitioners through internship experiences and completing cross-disciplinary courses in ethics, policy and economics.
