This program is appropriate for any student wishing to study general principles and practices of agriculture, which can be applied in a myriad of ways. Through a combination of traditional coursework and practical applications, students master the basics of agricultural production and operations. The study of animal and plant science, animal husbandry, and soil conservation prepares students to embark upon various career paths relating to the environment, agribusiness, food production, and entrepreneurship.
