Center for Regenerative Agriculture and Resilient Systems

Educational Programs

Hands in soil with cover crops

Join us in creating a truly sustainable world through a system of agriculture that addresses the biggest issues of our time—global climate change, soil health and enhanced ecosystem services, food and water security—while offering increased yields and greater health and prosperity for farmers and ranchers and the greater community. 

The MS Interdisciplinary Studies: Regenerative Agriculture is open to students with a BS or BA degree. It is an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from Agriculture, Environmental Sciences, Nutrition or Communications and Education that allows you to design a program best suited for your interests and goals with the guidance of an advisory team of faculty.

The Online Certificate program, currently in development, will allow you to benefit from many of the same courses without the need of having a Bachelor’s degree. It is especially appropriate for farmers, ranchers, and community members who require the ability to work on their own schedule while continuing to work full-time or attend to other responsibilities at home. Be sure to follow us on social media and sign up for our newsletter to get updates on this exciting new program!

The Agricultural Management Systems Learning Collaborative ("The Collaborative") is a joint project between CRARS and the California Association of Resource Conservation Districts (CARCD) and is funded through a grant from the USDA National Institutes of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Non-Land Grant Colleges of Agriculture (NLGCA) program. The Collaborative is developing a comprehensive approach to train and support producers, agricultural professionals, and students to become leaders in systems-based agricultural management. The first offering is a continuing education training program with participant stipends intended to establish and effectively foster this peer mentoring network.
