Program Overview

For thousands of years, agriculture has been at the cutting edge of innovation and technology. Today, agriculture science is a driving force in numerous industries that have a great deal of impact on the global economy. Ag science is one of the many applied fields of biology and is an excellent area of study for students interested in researching issues such as resource optimization, animal health, and production of animals and plants for food or fiber.

After completing the Associate of Science degree in Agriculture Science from College of Western Idaho (CWI) you will have the opportunity to transition on to a college or university and pursue a Bachelor of Science degree. The transfer is made easy with CWI’s comprehensive agreements with bachelor-level Agriculture programs such as the five Bachelor of Science programs in agriculture offered at University of Idaho. From here, you will be positioned to pursue a rewarding career in agriculture education, civil service, production, or research.
