The future of agriculture depends on the next generation of professionals who are interested in learning about agroecology, animal science, policy, plants, technology, soil and sustainability. Students must first complete an associate-level degree before applying to the BAS program.
The most direct pathway is to earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Integrated Agricultural Systems then transition to the BAS in Agricultural Systems. Other AAS degree options include:
- Animal Science
- Enology & Viticulture
- Irrigation Management
- Plant & Soil Science
- Turf Management
- Watershed Management
The BAS in Agricultural Systems offers hands-on career training. Employers actively seek graduates of BAS programs because they have gained the necessary knowledge and applicable skills to immediately enter the workforce with minimal to no additional training.
