New Agriculture Science Major Moving Toward Fall 2022 Launch
Experts believe agriculture and sustainability will rise to the forefront of global concerns in the coming years, with projections indicating that global food production will need to increase 70% by 2050.
Corban University will utilize its unique location in the rich, agriculturally-diverse Willamette Valley to create a rigorous undergraduate agriculture science program built on a Christian worldview, becoming one of the only Christian universities on the West Coast with an agriculture science degree.
The decision is born of a desire to educate and equip Christians to be competent, ethical voices in the agricultural and scientific communities, helping to meet the world’s increasing need for food in ways that are beneficial, sustainable, and honoring to God. Corban’s goal is to launch the program with 20 students, with plans for further sustainable growth in the next five years. The University is still actively raising funds to ensure a sustainable launch.
