|Description:||The BSc (Agr) Honours program provides an innovative research experience for academically strong students that will prepare them for a research-driven employment opportunity or admission to graduate study. Students who take the Honours program will be able to apply scientific methods in an individual research project, research a scientific question, design and conduct experiments to address a scientific question, develop a critical synthesis of scientific results and communicate experimental concepts effectively both in writing and orally.
The dynamic agricultural industry needs skilled managers to shape strategy and policy, offerleadership to industry organizations and grow the viability of the agri-food sector through business development. These are the opportunities and challenges that excite our students – and make this program the right fit for you. Dalhousie’s Agricultural Business program is where science meets business, bringing the best of both worlds together. We deliver a hands-on scientific education with practical experience in the lab and in the field.
