Agricultural Sciences

Students studying pathways in Agricultural Sciences learn about the science, business, and technology of plant and animal production.

Each pathway exposes students to classroom and laboratory experiences. In the classroom, students learn concepts and theories dealing with agricultural and agribusiness topics. Classroom learning is followed by the laboratory experiences where students are able to put concepts and theories into practice.
