When AG 112 or AG 251 is used to count as a concentration requirement, it cannot also count as an elective.
Students would need to complete or concurrently enrolled in CHEM 151/CHEM 151L or CHEM 161/CHEM 161L or GEO 101 or GEO 101L if taking AG 200.
The program will provide comprehensive courses in plant science and sustainable agriculture. The subjects included plants, soils, crop production, pest management, food, agricultural systems, business, and landscaping. The CA program builds on Certificate of Competence (CO) program, utilizing several existing courses in Sustainable Agriculture. Students will have an opportunity to pursue an Associate in Science (AS) degree, which builds upon this program.
