MicroMasters® Program in Sustainable Agribusiness by Doane University (edX)
The Sustainable Agriculture MicroMasters program will prepare you to play a role in ensuring a sustainable agricultural system, whether you are a manager, grower, food processor, distributor, retailer, consumer, or waste manager. To understand sustainability, an interdisciplinary approach is essential.
From the individual farm to the local ecosystem, and to local and global communities affected by crop and livestock production practices, you will gain an understanding of the importance of sustainable agriculture in its broadest sense. By focusing on the system, we can gain a better understanding of the environmental and social impacts of crop and livestock practices. With a systems approach, you can explore the interconnections between agriculture and other aspects of our environment.
To achieve sustainable agriculture, farmers, labourers, policymakers, researchers, retailers, consumers, and managers must work together. As a MicroMasters graduate, you will be equipped with the fundamental knowledge necessary to contribute effectively to the sustainable agriculture community.
