Agroecology, the study of agricultural ecosystems, is an interdisciplinary degree program within the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management and the Department of Plant Sciences. The Bachelor of Science in Agroecology is an innovative and highly practical degree program, and the first of it's kind in the nation.

The program uses an ecosystems approach to agriculture that considers an ecological web encompassing the soil environment, agronomic and horticultural plants, and diverse interacting forms of life including microbes, insects, and other animals.
