Agriculture Programs

Agriculture = food, science, animals, environmental stewardship, business + tech. It’s international, a democratizing force and connected to every being.

At the Ontario Agricultural College of the University of Guelph, we’ve been re-defining agriculture since 1874. We offer a collection of degrees and diplomas that cover the breadth of this complex sector. No other educational institution in Canada offers more variety when it comes to program and course options. Explorethe options and decide what’s right for you. Whichever program or specialization you choose, your studies will prepare you to be a real contributor to agriculture and our world.
