Includes principals of agricultural sciences and business operations needed to develop and communicate agricultural subject matter in effective ways; and production of technically specialized information products for agricultural audiences.
A recent national study predicts a shortage of college graduates in agriculture in the areas of management and science. Graduates with management and financial skills will be in demand. Agri-business, government agencies and related industries need managers and technicians who can communicate with farmers. Graduates who broaden their agricultural experiences with courses in business and computers can enhance their opportunities for employment in agriculture.
All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile (ETSP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at http://www.volstate.edu/Testing/Services.php.
