Return to Degree Programs (By Dept.) Return to: Degree Programs (By Dept.)

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.

This degree is intended for students wishing to pursue careers in journalism, public relations, sales and marketing, and other professions in the agriculture industry. This program of study will also assist students wishing to transfer to a university to continue their study in agriculture.
