Sustainable Agriculture – One Year Certificate

Building on the Specialty Crop Growers Short-Term Certificate, this one-year program in Sustainable Agriculture will allow you to explore careers in agriculture and food systems. You will learn key sustainability and land stewardship skills while studying the interactions between food, human health, and ecosystem services. You will contribute to the production, distribution, and marketing of locally grown produce through hands-on experiences with local farmers and growers.

The certificate may allow you to work in a nursery or greenhouse, as farmworker or agricultural technician, or to produce your own specialized crops.

This program is offered in collaboration with The Ohio State University Agriculture Technical Institute (OSU/ATI) in Wooster, OH, and the George Jones Memorial Farm in Oberlin, OH. Courses taken may count toward the requirements for an Associate of Science in Sustainable Agriculture.

NOTE: Some courses require travel time to off-campus sites.
