Agricultural Courses

Bowdoin does not currently offer any coursework in agriculture or farming. They do however offer a number of course that afford students the opportunity to explore various aspects of farming. Those courses are listed below. In lieu of actual coursework, students are encouraged to come to the farm to learn first hand how their food grows, how to run a small farm, all about different heirloom and uncommon varieties of vegetables, and anything else farming related that they may want to know!
