A bachelor of science in agricultural science, communication and leadership offers both breadth and depth of knowledge – you will become proficient in several topic areas and master at least one.
You will select your areas of emphasis according to your career goals. Choose from courses in agricultural education; agricultural science and technology; agricultural systems management; animal and veterinary science; family and consumer science; food science and toxicology; microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry; and plant, soil and entomological science.
In technical agriculture courses, you’ll learn by doing. Explore cow pregnancy rates and grazing management systems at on-campus animal centers. Observe the effects of insects on crop health at our plant science farms and use innovative water management and irrigation systems at our computer-controlled greenhouse. See how both engines and food-processing equipment work in the machinery lab.
Students are encouraged to gain real-world work experience with an internship the summer between their junior and senior year. You’ll also take field trips to various agriculture-related companies to meet with business leaders and tour their operations.
You can also earn a bachelor's degree through the University of Idaho while in Twin Falls. You can take classes at Twin Falls in person, on videotape, by videoconference and online. You have the option to transfer to the University of Idaho in Moscow for your last two years.
