The Sustainable Agriculture and Entrepreneurship program is designed to provide area landowners, farmers, and young adults with access to land, the entrepreneurial skills necessary to start a new or further develop an existing land-based business. Students can pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree or limit their coursework to particular areas of interest.
Many people who pursue the Associate of Applied Science degree or certificate in Sustainable Agriculture and Entrepreneurship plan to apply these skills to their own agriculture business or work for an agricultural-related business. Others will choose to continue their education by transferring to a four-year college or university.
