General Agriculture

Associate of Applied Science degree

The Associate of Applied Science degree in General Agriculture is an introductory program designed for individuals seeking employment opportunities in the agriculture industry or for transferability to a university. The curriculum includes instruction in technology principles and agricultural operations. Since the program offers students a choice of general education core and electives, it is extremely important for the student to use care in course selection. If the primary goal is to transfer, the student must learn in advance of the particular requirements of the intended school or university. If the primary goal involves occupational skills or personal growth, the student must consult with an LCC advisor before selecting courses.
