The Agricultural Science Program prepares students for a variety of careers and further education.  The agricultural science of producing food and fiber, managing natural resources, and researching new and innovative ways to improve our environment lead to a tremendous demand from businesses nation-wide.  This degree option allows students to choose areas of emphasis that include Agroecology, Animal Science, Range Management, Horticulture, and Meat and Food Science.  The majority of our students continue on to four-year colleges and universities and we work closely with these schools to make the transfer process as seamless as possible.
