Areas of Study, Coursework

The Ag Program offers degrees in both conventional and sustainable agriculture as well as a transfer degree for students planning to obtain a bachelor’s degree in an agriculturally-related field at a 4-year college or university.

On the conventional side, our Associate of Science transfers to 4-year programs and our Associate of Applied Science and our Farm and Ranch Management Certificate prepare students to enter directly into the workforce.

The sustainable agriculture program aims to offer a diverse set of courses that help define sustainability as applied to agriculture. Techniques for adding value to agricultural products, business and management concepts as applied to small farms, marketing approaches to increase sales for sustainable small farms, and other tools for economically and sustainably operating a small farm are developed via coursework and through a required internship at the Eagle Eye Demonstration Garden or the Research and Demonstration Farm. NTCC offers an AAS and two certificates in sustainable agriculture.

NTCC’s online catalog contains a wealth of information about all degree programs on campus, including agriculture; course descriptions are also available.  For your convenience, I’ve also included here direct links to the catalog pages for each of our degrees
