The Agriculture program is designed to provide a general education background, and the knowledge and skills needed for a career in agriculture. The profession includes work in animal and plant production, as well as a wide variety of industries that support growers. Through curricular course requirements and choices, students build foundations in plant science, animal science, soil science, business, and economics. The curriculum demands significant practical, technical and communication skills. Learning takes place in the classroom, the laboratory, the field, and the library/academic support centers. Students should consult with an academic advisor in planning an appropriate program. Most Agriculture program classes are available to be taken for credit or non-credit. Courses offered in January and August. For additional information, contact Nicole Barth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
