I changed the 'courses taught schedule' and the 'schedule types.' I know this course is scheduled for first offering in Winter 2020 but am uncertain if the college wants to change the term for the following years.

Approved by Belinda Sykes Catalog & Curriculum Coord. / Office of the Registrar, August 9, 2019 8:16am

Proposal

Proposal ID: 106841
Type: New Course
Submission Date: June 17, 2019 10:35am
Approval Date: August 9, 2019 8:16am
Effective Term: Fall 2019
Justification:
The global human population is becoming increasingly urban. The study of agricultural production, as applied in urban areas, is needed in order to effectively produce food in these environments. Demand for food is expected to increase amidst challenges from changing climates, water scarcity, and loss of agricultural land. Examining these issues in urban systems is key to understand this growing frontier in food production. Urban systems are vastly different than traditional agricultural environments and are unlikely to excel if relying solely upon inappropriate knowledge and research. This course is intended for students interested in producing food within an urban environment. This course differs from HORT 285 by focusing on single-plot production for economic gain. This course differs from HORT 260 by focusing on how agricultural principles are different when examined in the context of an urban setting, and by focusing on discovering market potential rather than presuming organic production. This course differs from HORT 315 by focusing on annual crop production and soft-scape design.
Comments:
This program and its required classes will be 100% attainable via online learning.
