    This course examines the role of the manager in the organization and operation of the agri-business. Prerequisites: MA115 or higher and CF351 or BA110.
  • AG/BI430 Scientific Photography
    Credits: 3.0 , Offered: Spring / Even Years
    Photography is one of the primary means through which scientific observation and research is documented and presented to colleagues and the public. By developing technical observational and aesthetic skills, students will learn how to extract relevant information from nature using macro-photography, photomicrography, special techniques and digital processing. Students will learn the basics of photography and the use of a computer as the digital darkroom. This course includes two hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory; weekly. Laboratories will either be field activities or hands-on experience in the classroom. AG/BI430L is the laboratory portion of AG/BI430 and MUST be taken concurrently. Co requisite: AG/BI430L.
