By Olds College
Olds College of Agriculture & Technology is launching a new agriculture communications certificate program. The first program of its kind offered in Canada, this one-year program prepares students for a meaningful career supporting the agriculture and agri-food industry in communications and marketing.
Offered online, the new Agriculture Communications program courses focus on writing, videography, photography, marketing and audio production, as well as, strategic planning for social media, public relations and crisis communications. Students will also complete a 14-week internship within the agriculture and agri-food industry that will provide them with work-integrated learning opportunities.
“Agriculture has important stories to tell,” comments Bertrand Bickersteth, Instructor, Communications, Werklund School of Agriculture. “Graduates from this program will be equipped to work in the industry to share these stories in meaningful ways.”
Twenty students will be accepted into the program for fall 2023. Applications are open now.
