Pursue the field of your dreams

You can be part of a growing industry full of opportunities with the Agriculture Sciences program. Our two-year diploma will send you on your way to a rewarding career, giving you expertise in a variety of areas, including agricultural research and animal health. You’ll learn how diverse agriculture is and how it stays successful. In your second year, you can choose the area that interests you most by majoring in either Plant and Soil Science or Animal Science.  We’ll help you plant the career you’ve always dreamed of.

Agriculture Sciences is right for you if you:

  • have a passion for agriculture but may not be sure where you fit best in the industry
  • have good communication, organization and problem-solving skills
  • would like to expand your knowledge of the agricultural field.

Beef up your career

We stress modern business, entrepreneurial and marketing skills employers appreciate. So, you can be assured you’ll get the hands-on experience you need by working with plants, soils and animals. You’ll also work with real business models while receiving the opportunity to tour feedlots, dairies and hog barns. We’ll equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to be a vital part of this dynamic and growing industry.
