Field advantage: New U of A agronomy courses offer students chance to get their hands dirty

The University of Alberta has introduced two new agriculture courses designed to give students on-the-ground experience to improve their chances of finding employment.

Exploring Field Crop Agronomy and Work Experience in Agriculture were the direct result of feedback that the university received from its industry partners, said Heather Bruce, chair of the department of agricultural, food and nutritional science at the University of Alberta.

"We find that our industry partners are far more receptive to hiring our graduates if they have some sort of experiential learning or have experienced an internship or have worked for an industry partner for a short period of time."
