Why study Agronomy?

The Associate of Applied Science in Agriculture with emphasis in Agronomy program provides students with a strong foundation to pursue a career in an agronomic related field. As world population approaches nine billion people, agronomists will be responsible for increasing food production on fewer acres while ensuring resources will be available for future generations. Employment opportunities include crop and seed production, fertilizer sales and application, pest and weed control, seed sales, crop scouting, seed analysts, and soil scientists. Course work focuses on soil and plant sciences, soil erosion management, soil fertilization, and chemical safety and application. In addition to regular classroom hours, students work for an employer in the agronomy industry with an occupational internship. The internship provides a unique opportunity to apply the knowledge acquired in class to work situations.
