Program Description

Offered Completely Online

The Agribusiness Technology program is designed to enable students to find employment in the areas of production agriculture and agribusiness. Instructional areas include crop production, animal production, management, sales and marketing. Students will be provided with a combination of classroom instruction and agriculture/cooperative work experience.

Since agriculture and its supporting businesses employ about 25 percent of the labor force in the United States, there is a definite need for program graduates in the area, state and nation.

All students must attend the summer Program Orientation, or must meet/contact their Agribusiness Technology program advisor prior to taking their first course.

All part-time students must meet with an Agribusiness Technology program advisor to develop a sequential Plan of Study prior to taking their first course. (failure to do so may result in the student taking longer to complete the program)

Students must take their program core courses in sequence, and during the same semester as is reflected on the published Plan of Study.

The AGC-936 Occupational Experience course can only be taken after the first year of the program is completed, and only during the preceding summer semester between the first and second year of the program.
