Agriscience/Horticulture

Program Description

The Agriscience program offers a comprehensive animal or plant science program. In the Animal Science program, first year students cover basic animal anatomy and physiology, as well as caring for the animals in our Animal Center. Second year students may choose to complete an on-line veterinary assistant program, a college-level course in preparation for employment in the veterinary field or further study in veterinary medicine. Second year students may also work with the instructor to create an individualized program, such as Natural Resources or Advanced Animal Management, specific to the student’s interests. Plant Science offers one or two years of plant biology and propagation experience, and specialization in several horticultural areas including floriculture which includes floral design and greenhouse production, crop science which is planting, growth, pest and disease management and nursery-landscape, including design, growth and installation of landscape, plants and materials. The National FFA Organization provides opportunities for leadership and skills competitions, and emphasizes public speaking, debate and demonstration of agriscience career proficiency. We have a commercial greenhouse operation, and working retail floral shop on premises, allowing students a real-world working experience.
