This program is designed for students interested in the application and integration of biological and physical sciences to sustainable crop production. Students transfer into crop science or agronomy programs for careers in seed, fertilizer, and chemical industries, or in crop production. Transfer into a soil science or ecology curriculum can lead to land management and natural resource management positions. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
