    Course Summary

    The University of Saskatchewan’s Agribusiness programs are delivered by its College of Agriculture and Bioresources. You’ll have plenty of choice when it comes to how you’d like to study, as the college offers three separate Agribusiness degrees:

    • A two year Diploma in Agribusiness will give you a firm basis in the field, and all of the credits you take can be transferred to either of the BSc programs later, if you wish. 
    • A four year Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness would give you the skills you need to forge a great career in this field.
    • A four hear Honours BSc in Agribusiness would prepare you well for a master’s level degree in a related field, or to operate at a higher level in the industry. 

    Like most of USask’s degree programs, this one includes the option to boost to your employability with co-operative or experiential learning programs. Engaging any of these will ensure that you get real world working experience within your chosen career, industry or niche.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
