Graduate students apply their academic knowledge while acquiring and expanding transferable skills through work experience. A self-directed plan completed by the student, with input from the employer and approved by the supervisor, supervisory committee and graduate chair, will detail the anticipated learning outcomes. Regular self- and employer evaluations are required, along with a final paper. This is an open learning class which can take place in any academic term.

Prerequisite(s): Permission must be granted by AgBio Dean's office. Students must be pursuing a thesis-based graduate program (ie., MSc or PhD) in Animal and Poultry Science, Plant Sciences, Soil Science, Food Science, or Agricultural and Resource Economics.
Note: Students enrolled in the work integrated learning concentration in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources must register in AGRC 800.0.
