SAG 490 - INTEGRATION OF SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE PRINCIPLES


College of Ag, Food and Environment

Credit(s): 3

This course provides an intensive opportunity for students to integrate critical aspects of sustainability into a semester-long project. The project will involve research, design, and implementation phases, and students will present their work in both written and oral forms. This class will also allow students to gain a deeper understanding of a range of topics related to sustainable agriculture through field trips to local agriculture and food system entities, and hands-on workshops where skills and techniques are learned. Field trip and workshop topics will be determined by the students and instructor at the beginning of the semester. Additionally, students will gain first-hand experience in sustainable agriculture by taking a spring break study tour to visit exemplary agriculture sites in a region of the United States. This course comprises a portion of the Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK. A course fee is required, as indicated by notification during course registration.
