The Farm and Ranch Program provides marketable, entry-level skills in management for positions in agriculture-related business and industry. Students obtain a foundational knowledge of plant and animal sciences to augment business knowledge and skills. Graduates of this program enter the rapidly expanding job market in businesses which process and market agriculture commodities or businesses which sell goods and services to producers. Students planning to return to a farm or ranch enterprise will also find this program useful. The selection of electives allows students to pursue their areas of interest. Students must complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements.
Total General Education Requirements: 19-21 Credits
Core and Elective courses taken as part of completion of a degree program may also be used to meet General Education requirements where applicable. Please note that use of these courses to meet General Education requirements may reduce the number of hours required to complete a degree, however that number cannot be reduced below the institutional minimum of 60 credits.
