Study a variety of topics in our interdisciplinary program focused on sustainability. Courses in Urban Agriculture and Renewable Resources will prepare you for green careers in a variety of sectors, including food production, environmental services, agricultural business, natural resources, community development and plant and animal sciences.
Urban agriculture is the practice of producing food within a city. New technology allows producers to make efficient and creative use of space to produce food, conserve natural resources and strengthen local food systems. Renewable resources like solar and wind energy reduce our dependence on less sustainable energy resources.
As a student in the Urban Agriculture and Renewable Resources Pathway, you'll complete the core curriculum and elective agriculture courses at El Centro College toward an Associate of Science (AS) degree.
As you near completion of your AS degree, you'll have the opportunity to transfer to UNT Dallas for the completion of a
Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science (BAAS) degree in Urban Agriculture.
Additional bachelor's degree transfer programs are available, so please contact the
STEM Center to learn more!
