Whether you are you interested in operating your own farm, running an agricultural business, or gaining employment in the agribusiness sector, the Farm and Industry Short Course program might be a wise alternative to a four-year college degree program.
The Farm and Industry Short Course is a 15-week educational program uniquely designed to prepare students for exciting careers in agriculture. You can choose from about 50 courses in the areas of soils, crops, dairy, meat animals, agricultural engineering, farm business planning, agribusiness, human relations, and communications. You do not need to specialize or major in any particular area and can choose those courses that are of greatest interest and value to you. If you wish to focus on a specific topic, six specialty certificates are offered.
