UMass Amherst is thrilled to announce that the Stockbridge School of Agriculture is offering an all online Associates Degree in Sustainable Food and Farming. If you wish to explore a career in sustainable agriculture but are not able to take classes on campus, this degree is a perfect match.

All ages, backgrounds and experiences are encouraged to apply!

The major offers flexibility in designing a personal program of study, allowing students to focus on farm production and marketing, food systems, agricultural education, public policy, advocacy and community development.  A wide range of courses are offered from experienced instructors such as Introduction to Permaculture, Organic Vegetable Production, Urban Agriculture, Soils, Global Food Systems, Nonprofit Mgt of Comm. Food Programs and Land Use Policies, to name just a few.

Students in this program will also be encouraged to consider their dreams and how to make them a reality, through independent studies and agricultural practicums that allow students time “off-line” speaking with professionals in their field of interest.

Applications for the Fall semester are due April 15th!
