Overview

Between the strong reputation of the Southern Utah University program, the internship opportunities, and hands-on nature of the program, the agricultural sciences and industries degree has earned an excellent track record for job placement of graduates in the agriculture field.

Education

As a student in this Agriculture - Livestock Farm Management program at Southern Utah University, you will take a common core of classes and then choose an area of emphasis in which you will take more specialized courses. Areas of emphasis include:

  • Plant Science
  • Animal Science
  • Agricultural Business
  • Equine Science

Students also have the option to customize a general agricultural degree program to achieve specific career goals.
