Agroecology aims to both increase the ecological benefits of farming, as well as address concerns of economic viability and social justice throughout the food system.

UVM is offering a 9-credit, online Micro-Certificate of Graduate Study in Agroecology. The one-year program includes three courses: Introduction to Agroecology; Ecological Foundations of Agroecology (Science); and Agroecology, Food Sovereignty and Social Movements.

Courses in the micro-certificate represent the three dimensions of agroecology: science, movement and practice.

  • PSS 311 Intro to Agroecology
  • PSS 312 The Ecological Foundations of Agroecology
  • PSS 314 Agroecology, Food Sovereignty, and Social Movements

Agroecology focuses on farming that produces food, jobs, and economic well-being as well as creates cultural, social and environmental benefits. Join us and take part in creating meaningful change.

You must apply and be accepted into the Graduate College to earn this certificate.
