This degree will prepare students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university. The courses have been designed to transfer to the University of Wyoming’s College of Agriculture. Other colleges or universities may have other requirements and students should work with their EWC advisors to plan for other college requirements. This degree presents the students with six options: a General Agriculture option for those that are not sure in what specific area in agriculture they would like to major, a Business option, a Communications option, an Agroecology/Agronomy option, an Animal Science option, and an Equine Science option.
Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a grade of “C” or better.
This option is for students who are not sure what area they would like to specialize in and would like basic training in a number of agricultural subjects. It is recommended for training for professions which involve a broad knowledge of agriculture-operators and managers of general farms, county agricultural agents, agricultural writers, and many other types of commercial agricultural positions. Encouraged are electives with the following prefixes: AGEC, AGRI, AGTK, ANSC, CROP, ELTR, EQST, MCHT, REWM, and WELD.
