Biology Chemistry Agricultural Science

Associate in Science

Agriculture is one of the largest long-term industries in the nation. It provides a multitude of food products, alternative energies and the protection of environmental resources. Interested in a “Green” career? Then, our program is for you! Our program provides you with a strong foundation in the biological and physical sciences. You will also learn the disciplines of plant and animal science, as well as fundamental knowledge in genetics and microbiology.

Our Agricultural Science option prepares you for advanced studies or specialization at a 4-year institution. Students who obtain an Associate’s Degree may pursue careers such as, but not limited to GPS/GIS technicians, chemical dealers or farm managers.

    "As an incoming college student, I feel like SCC was the best choice for me! I’m very excited to see what this school has in store for me! While here, I hope to meet new people, make new memories, but most importantly, gain as much knowledge as I can to further my education at a larger university/college. After my time at SCC, I plan on completing my Bachelors degree in either Biology or Environmental Science in hopes of becoming an Animal or Wildlife Biologist!"
