1 AGRO ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES B.Sc. (Ag. Env. Sc.) Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences McGill University, Macdonald Campus PROGRAM HANDBOOK For students entering the program in the Academic Year 1

2 Congratulations! You have selected an exciting academic program at McGill University s Macdonald Campus. The Major in Agro Environmental Sciences offers a vibrant learning experience by using the unique setting of the Macdonald Campus, one of the largest green spaces on the Island of Montreal. This Major is focused on the idea that agricultural landscapes are managed ecosystems, and that humans engaged in agriculture must maintain the highest possible environmental standards while providing food and other bioproducts to the marketplace. The core of the Major is focused on the basic and applied biology of cultivated plants and domestic animals, arable soils, and the economics of agriculture. The program has a strong experiential component which includes hands on laboratories, visits to agricultural enterprises, and opportunities for internships and international field studies. Classes and laboratories exploit the unique setting and facilities of the Macdonald Campus. We have dairy, swine, poultry and field crop farms, a horticulture center where food is grown for McGill students, an arboretum, an ecomuseum, several greenhouses, an entomology museum and much more, all in an urban setting that exemplifies many of the issues at the forefront of modern agricultural production. This handbook will provide you with the essentials as you move through your degree, and will hopefully save you a lot of time and frustration. Please read this handbook carefully and keep it for future reference, since most answers to your questions will likely be here, or found in the Resources section. The latter section will link you to many important websites and/or people. The FAQ section will also prove helpful to you as you move through your degree in Agro Environmental Sciences. Since course offerings change, make sure you have all of the most current information by checking Minerva and meeting with your advisor regularly. I wish you the best of luck as you embark on a successful academic career at McGill University. Julie Major, agr., Ph.D. Academic Advisor B.Sc. (Ag.Env.Sc.) 2

4 PROGRAM OVERVIEW AND PROGRAM STRUCTURE Here are some important points about your degree and its requirements, and it is entirely your responsibility to fulfill these requirements: You need to determine how many credits you need to complete all your degree requirements; this differs depending on your background, but most students coming from the Québec education system require 90 credits. Regardless, this number will be on the letter of acceptance that was sent to you from McGill. Any advanced standing will be on your transcript at the beginning of the academic year. To get a McGill degree you need at least 60 credits being awarded from McGill courses A rule specific to our Faculty states that 2/3 of the credits required when you begin your B.Sc. (Ag. Env. Sc.) must be taken on the Macdonald Campus. This means 60 credits if you enter from a science DEC in CEGEP, or 2/3 of the credits remaining for your degree if you are given credit for other previous studies. McGill has a C minimum policy: you must get higher than D in your pre requisite, required and complementary courses. If you get a D grade in such a course, you will need to take the course again and obtain a higher grade in order to make the course count towards your degree requirements. In the case of a complementary course, if you get a D grade you can either take the course again or chose another from the list. Courses with a grade of D which are not re taken count as electives. You require at least 12 credits at or above the 400 level. You can tell the level of a course by the first digit of the course number. If you retake a course in which you obtained an F in initially, the F grade will continue to affect your GPA. If you retake a course in which you obtained a D or higher initially, the same as the above applies, BUT NOTE THAT YOU CAN RECEIVE CREDIT FOR THE COURSE ONLY ONCE. You must be especially mindful of this if you retake the course under a different code (e.g., get a D in FDSC 230 and get C or better in CHEM 212, these two being equivalent courses). Minerva will give credit for both courses until someone manually alters the student s record. Students have been prevented from graduating because they banked on receiving credit twice for a course they re took. To get your degree in the Agro Environmental Sciences Program you must take the requirements for your Major (42 credits) and the requirements for at least one Specialization (24 credits). If you take the number of credits you need for your degree, and subtract these 66 credits, the remaining credits are called electives : these are any other courses at McGill University or elsewhere, which qualify and for which you obtain a grade of C or higher. Consult with your advisor BEFORE taking courses outside McGill, and also before taking Continuing Education courses at McGill. 4

5 Agro Environmental Sciences: The Major in Agro Environmental Sciences consists of 36 required credits (i.e., 12 courses since most courses at McGill are 3 credits each) plus 6 credits of complementary courses. The required and complementary courses form the scientific foundations of your program. If you are not sure about when to take what courses, as a general rule of thumb, courses beginning with 2 are typically taken in U1, those starting with 3 are typically for U2 students, and those starting with 4 are typically designed for your final year of study. Specializations: These are sets of courses in one particular discipline that form a total of 24 (or 21) credits, and allow you to become specialized in that topic. For example, you may be interested in disciplines such as Animal Production, Ecological Agriculture, Soil and Water Resources or Plant Production. You do not need to declare your Specialization until the end of your first year (U1). The Professional Agrology Specialization (21 credits) is designed for those students who plan to become professional agrologists in the province of Québec and is to be taken in conjunction with one of the four Specializations listed in bold, above. NOTE: When you graduate, your Major and Specialization(s) MUST have appeared on your University transcript for at least the last two consecutive semesters (a Québec Ministry of Education rule). THEREFORE, by the end of your penultimate year your MUST have declared and fixed upon your Major and Specialization(s). To select a Specialization, fill out the appropriate form found at or in Dr. Major s office. You will need Dr. Major s signature. Most students take five courses per term, but some choose to take four for a variety of reasons including language difficulties or other complications associated with carrying a full course load. The overall program can be completed in three years if a full course load (i.e., 15 credits) is taken each term. You must take a minimum of 27 credits/year to be eligible for scholarships, and you are considered to be a full time student when you take at least 12 credits during a semester. Advisor, Program Director and Specialization Coordinators: during the course of your degree, your academic advisor, Dr. Julie Major, will help you with course selection and provide you with general guidance and advice. It is recommended that you meet with Dr. Major regularly throughout your time at McGill, to ensure that you are on the right track to achieving your goals in the timeframe that you expect. When special needs arise such as obtaining equivalences for courses taken elsewhere, or transferring credits, you must meet with Dr. Major to update your records in a timely manner and avoid unpleasant surprises at your expected time of graduation. For mentoring and questions relating to course and program content, you should contact the program director for Agro Environmental Sciences (Prof. Roger Cue) and/or your Specialization Coordinator (see the Resources section). 5

10 Ecological Agriculture (24 credits) The Ecological Agriculture Specialization provides a holistic understanding of how agroecosystems work and the science of sustainable agriculture. It emphasizes the interrelationships among soils, plants, insects, animals, humans and other components of agroecosystems. Also, the Specialization applies ecological concepts and principles to the design and management of sustainable agroecosystems. This Specialization is where agriculture, ecology and environment interact. Ecological agriculture addresses both the practical and theoretical issues that arise from this interaction including ecosystem dynamics, agroecology of food crops, and the role of agriculture in rural and urban landscapes. The Specialization strives to view agroecosystems as a whole in the context of today s global economy, social systems and environment. Through coursework and the possibility of internships students will be exposed to the environmental and social context of agriculture and will be able to develop workable solutions to the challenge of sustainable food production. When taken in conjunction with the Major in Agro Environmental Sciences and the Specialization in Professional Agriculture, this Specialization conforms with the eligibility requirements for the Ordre des agronomes du Québec. If you have an interest in agriculture and the environment, the Ecological Agriculture Specialization could be right for you!
