Agri-Business, A.A.S.


Return to Degree/Certificate Programs Return to: Degree/Certificate Programs

Classes in agriculture are arranged to meet the needs of students who wish to complete their formal college work at Casper College or for persons who plan to obtain a bachelor’s degree elsewhere. Every effort is made to assist students in selecting a program which will fit their needs. Modern agriculture is a business and a science as well as a way of life, and the faculty recognizes that it is as important to produce alert and well-informed citizens as it is to train competent farmers and ranchers.

The agri-business terminal curriculum is designed to serve the needs of those students who do not plan to transfer to a four-year institution and who are desirous of a combination of agriculture and business courses which will aid them in entering production agriculture or in becoming employed in a related industry, i.e., feed industry, fertilizer sales, etc.
