Agricultural Sciences is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the many aspects of plants, animal science, wildlife, forestry, and turf/lawn/golf course management. Graduates of the program may also pursue a college degree in a related area at a two- or four-year college.
Typical learning activities include growing, establishing and maintaining nursery plants, greenhouse crops, and turf grass; managing ornamental horticulture enterprises; designing landscapes; and studying golf course management. Students will be introduced to small animal care which would be very beneficial for those planning a career in veterinary science. Students will learn about the conservation of natural resources related to plants and wildlife including biotechnology. Students will also assess environmental factors affecting forest establishment and growth.
Participation in personal and community leadership and FFA activities is an integral part of this program.
