Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems

The Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems program offers a flexible curriculum to students seeking to acquire integrated knowledge and experiences related to modern agricultural and food systems and/or preparing for varied careers in these fields.  It draws upon the diverse course offerings by the three academic departments in the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture and the Thompson School of Applied Science as well as those from other colleges at UNH.

The program offers both a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree

  • The B.A. degree will be particularly useful to those interested in having more flexibility to take courses from a variety of disciplines or pursuing a dual degree, second major or minor. 
  • The B.S. degree will best serve those seeking a strong foundation in scientific and technical knowledge and/or who envision pursuing an advanced degree in biological or agricultural sciences.

Both B.S. and B.A. students have the option of pursuing Honors in the Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Major.
