Co-Operator: Student numbers grow in faculty of agriculture
A growing number of students has enrolled in the University of Manitoba’s faculty of agriculture and food science this fall.
The 2016 fall term enrolment count is 965, which includes 792 degree students and 173 diploma students. These numbers include students in the human nutritional sciences program, which became part of the faculty in 2014.
“We have the happy challenge of trying to find enough classrooms to handle our increased student body,” said Karin Wittenberg, dean of the faculty, who points to increased awareness of the range of careers in agriculture, food and health for the influx of new students.
