Agriculture as an industry is as complex and technological as they come. It's also one that has changed dramatically through the years. SCC offers six focus areas within the program: Agribusiness, Agronomy, Diversified Agriculture, Golf & Sports Turf Management, Horticulture, and Livestock Production. The College has a long-standing reputation as a respected provider of concentrated technical agriculture education. A two-year degree in Agriculture Business & Management Technology gives you many career and education options. Approximately 80 percent of program graduates enter careers within the six focus areas, while 20 percent transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

If you're looking to work with animals, plants, the land, or in an agribusiness-related field, SCC's Agriculture Business & Management Technology program is for you. Choose from six focus areas: Agribusiness, Agronomy, Diversified Agriculture, Golf Turfgrass Management, Horticulture, and Livestock Production. Our state-of-the-art equipment matches the level of instruction and facilities. Technology has affected all aspects of the agriculture industry, and SCC's program uses the latest technology to prepare students for employment. Students receive hands-on training on the College's 900-acre livestock and land lab that includes the row crops, pasture, a two-hole golf course lab, and livestock facilities at the Ag Center. Students also assist the College's facilities crew with campus landscaping projects. The program also leases new tractors, self-propelled sprayers and combines that enable students to work with the latest equipment.
Student learning is enhanced by experiencing the program's renowned cooperative internship program that sends students across the United States and, in some cases, to foreign countries. Past SCC students have interned on ranches in Australia, Germany and New Zealand; at Augusta National Golf Club (home of the Master's); and in a variety of other places across the U.S.
