The CTC Department of Agriculture currently offers an Associate of Science (AS) degree in agriculture, a two-year agricultural industries certificate and three one-year certificates specializing in equine, horticulture and agriculture production.
The associate degree is a two-year program designed so the student can transfer course hours to a four-year university. The 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.
