The Certificate Program in Organic Agriculture at the University of Georgia provides students with the science, philosophy, and experience needed to produce food organically. To complete the certificate, students take four required courses and choose 6 credit hours of electives from a long list of complementary courses.
The certificate program emphasizes experiential learning and provides opportunities for students to combine theory and practice both in the classroom and on the certified organic farm that is a critical part of the overall certificate program. The Certificate is open to anyone, including UGA students majoring in any discipline, as well as individuals who have completed an undergraduate degree at UGA or elsewhere. The Certificate is scientifically based, and anyone pursuing the certificate should be aware that required courses in the program require prerequisite knowledge.
Current UGA students can enroll in the Program by going to the Application link on this website and completing the information listed.
Individuals who already have an undergraduate degree in any major from any accredited institution may pursue the Certificate once they are admitted to UGA as a post-baccalaureate student. Other than admission to UGA, there are no further requirements.
