The CTC Department of Agriculture offers an Associate of Science (AS) degree in agriculture, an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Agriculture with specializations in horticulture, equine science and production. We also offer a one and a two-year certificate in agricultural industries.
The associate of science degree is a two-year program designed so the student can transfer course hours to a four-year university. The applied science degree and certificate programs are designed to provide specialized training with a "hands-on" approach to learning.
The Department of Agriculture manages a 360-acre livestock center which includes newly-designed horse stalls, indoor and outdoor riding arenas, cattle production facilities, tillable cropland and pasture/rangeland for both the equine and bovine herds.
The Department of Agriculture also includes a climate-controlled greenhouse for horticulture classes and labs. The greenhouse is open for plant sales Monday, 3:35 - 6 p.m.; Tuesday-Wednesday, 10:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.; and Saturday 9 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
