The University of Manitoba’s School of Agriculture offers a two-year Agriculture Diploma program

The program is designed for those who plan to manage farms or pursue careers in the agricultural and food service and/or value added sectors.  The program is also designed for those who plan to transfer credits earned from the Agriculture Diploma program to one of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences’ degree programs.  The program core, common to all students, provides a broad yet integrated education in the production, management and marketing of agricultural and food products and the principles of managing a business. Students are taught to use this knowledge to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of a variety of alternative agricultural practices. The Agriculture Diploma program has a long and rich tradition, going back to 1906, as the first program offered by the Manitoba Agricultural College.  The program has a strong focus on communication and leadership development.  Program alumni have and continue provide leadership to Manitoba agricultural organizations contribute to agricultural policy development at the national international level.The School of Agriculture is also responsible for the administration of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences’ short courses, conference and certificate programs.

The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences offers several undergraduate and graduate degree programs on the Fort Garry Campus located in Winnipeg.  Experiential learning and research facilities are also located at the Faculty’s Glenlea Research station and at the Ian Morrison Research Farm, Carman and Region Facility.
