Class Lists with Live Links to Course Descriptions

(We are always adding new classes and sometimes haven't updated the categories below yet, so for a complete list see here):

General Requirements  

  • MATH 104 (3) (Offered online in summer session 1 and winter terms)
  • ENGLWRIT 111 or 112 (3)  (Offered online at UMass as full summer course May 21-Aug.17. Occasionally fall/spring semesters too. Equivalent course is allowed with approval. Placement exam info)
  • STOCKSCH 106 - Soil Science and Management (3)   Or equivalent (with approval)
  • STOCKSCH 108 – Botany (4)  
  • STOCKSCH 198F -  Sustainable Food & Farming Internship (3)  By combining your classroom education with experience in the field, your practicum/internship should be a highlight of your Stockbridge education. Every internship is different and the requirements have flexibility. If you are working to establish your own farm for example, and your life situation is such that you are not able to complete an independent study away from home, we can find a “residential solution.”

  • STOCKSCH 398B – Agricultural Practicum (1-6)
