Bachelors Degree in Agriculture & Forestry

The general field of agriculture and forestry includes sciences related to the study of animal and plant life and the management of resources cultivated and produced in these environments.

Agriculture studies refer to the cultivation of soil for the growing of plants, fungi and animals, meant for human consumption and use. Agriculture studies deal with sub-fields such as agribusiness, agro-economics, agronomy, farming, animal husbandry, or agronomy.

Forestry refers to the study of forest ecosystems and their creation, management and conservation. Forestry students learn sustainable solutions to lumber usage, as a limited valuable resource. Studies include information about the harmful effects of human and non-human activities on forests and forest habitats.

Both disciplines focus on the management of resources, while conserving and protecting the natural environment. They make use of elements related to the fields of biology, physics, social sciences, as well as political and managerial sciences.

Careers in agriculture and forestry cover a wide range of occupations including: agricultural consultant, arboriculture expert, commercial horticulturist, ecologist, environmental consultant, farm manager, forest manager, land-based engineer, marine scientist, soil scientist.
