Agricultural Biotechnology

Agricultural biotechnology prepares students for hands-on work in laboratory settings as well as work in settings with an agricultural focus.  Duties may involve genetic testing to identify beneficial traits in both animals and plants, identifying bacteria in the microbiome to guide decisions about which nutrients must be added to soils, or environmental testing to help growers determine when crops need to be watered and the best times for harvest.  

Courses in an agricultural biotech program include:

  • Technical Writing 
  • College Algebra 
  • Biology
  • Ag Science
  • Lab methods for Ag-Biotechnology
  • Molecular Biology for Ag-Biotechnology 
  • Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry
