Overview

The Agricultural Teaching and Research Center, computer lab, and off-campus internships are available to provide valuable practical experience. The emphasis of this Agricultural Business program at California State University Chico is to prepare students for entry-level management positions. Specialized subject areas include agricultural marketing, agricultural finance and appraisal, and agricultural business management.

Agriculture

Agriculture is and will remain a major industry in the nation as well as in California. There is a steady, continuing supply of professional managerial jobs for well-educated people in agriculture and natural resource management. In response to the quality of our programs and the career opportunities, the number of majors in the College of Agriculture continues to rise.

Individuals enrolled in the College of Agriculture receive theoretical knowledge and practical experience-both very necessary in becoming the future leaders of this important economic sector. Students learn through an integrated approach about the complex set of interrelationships between agriculture, the environment, political and social forces, and other sectors of the economy.

Career Outlook

Career opportunities appear excellent. Federal reports indicate that in the 21st century there will be more professional job openings in the agricultural and natural resource management sectors than there will be qualified graduates to fill those positions. Some graduates in agriculture enter positions leading to management responsibilities on the farm or ranch, in industry, in business, in governmental land management and regulatory agencies, or in research and education.
