Agricultural Sciences

A graduate with an AS in Agricultural Sciences should possess competencies in basic economics and management, plant and animal operations, pest control, production and utilization of plant and animal products, marketing and food sciences. The ultimate goal is to provide clear pathways for transfer for students to complete their BS in either a general BS in Ag Sciences and/or specialize in any number of ag science fields.
