Agri-Business, A.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} 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 agricultural business curriculum is offered for students who are planning a career in agri-business. This includes farming and ranching and jobs in agriculture related businesses such as farm equipment companies, fertilizer sales, feed companies, and commercial banks as well as other farm credit agencies. Numerous sales and management positions are available with the agricultural marketing industries, which form the connecting link between farmers and consumers.
