Program Overview

Today's agricultural managers are challenged to manage their land, animal, and natural resources in ways that ensure both long term profitability and sustainability of farms, ranches, and rural communities. Integrated Resource Management (IRM) is a concept within agricultural production that examines economic and environmental variables with an orientation toward more sustainable production. The Master of Agriculture degree with a specialization in Integrated Resource Management gives you the knowledge and skills necessary to operate an agricultural business efficiently and sustainably without sacrificing profits. CSU's online master's in agriculture is one of the only programs of its kind in the nation, and it is designed for working professionals. Some unique attributes of this degree are: *Students interact and network with others across the country as well as some international locations. *Advisors help students design plans of study that emphasize immediate career applicability. *Online education allows working professionals to obtain a degree without putting their careers on hold. Colorado State University's land-grant heritage, research expertise, and leadership in agricultural and sustainability education is reflected in the IRM degree which is offered by the Western Center for Integrated Resource Management (WCIRM) and is supported by the College of Agricultural Sciences, Warner College of Natural Resources, and College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, with some courses endorsed by the School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES).
