Environment and Agriculture (PSLA)

Both locally and internationally, there is increasing concern about how humans manage soils, use water, raise animals, and modify the genetic base of crops. This concentration prepares students to work in agroecology, biodiversity, sustainable agriculture, integrated pest management, and production science.  Students will be able to take an ecosystems approach in analyzing the relationship between agricultural science and social science through a local and global lens. Environment and Agriculture is also a fitting concentration for those interested in food security or food systems, and for those wishing to work with national and international governments, non-profits, and non-governmental organizations.
