Overview

The Agricultural Production Minor offers students in non-agricultural related majors a chance to develop expertise in animal and plant production. You can cover topics like ecological agriculture, crop production or herd management through a choice of complementary courses. 

This minor can be added to existing majors in the faculty, but more than 90 credits may be needed to meet the requirements of both the major and the minor. The program is not open to students in the Agro-Environmental Sciences Major. Students in this major who wish to further their expertise in agricultural production can register for the Specialization in Plant Production or in Animal Production. 


Careers

Agriculture production is closely related to other disciplines like basic or environmental biology. Once completed, this minor can provide you with the necessary expertise for cross-over work in agro-ecological settings. You could work in:

  • Agri-business management 
  • Farm management 
  • Management of natural resources 
  • Environmental Economist 
  • Policy Analyst
