Curriculum / Coursework
Andrew College developed the A.S. in Sustainable Agriculture program as a way for students to learn how to create and manage environmentally friendly and socially responsible agricultural systems. To achieve these goals, we offer the following discipline requirements (18 credits):
SAG 100: Intro to Sustainable Agriculture
SAG 105: Natural Resource Conservation
SAG 200: Plant Science and Crop Production
SAG 205: Animal Science
SAG 237: Sustainable Farm Management
SAG 250: Supervised Internship
In addition to the discipline requirements, the students will complete another 42 credits of coursework in such areas as humanities, science, and social science, totaling 60 credit hours.
Internships are usually done during the summer between freshman and sophomore years. Students are paired with local as well as regional farms that are leaders in regenerative and holistic agriculture and who can offer employment opportunities.
