The Agriculture and Food Management Department prepares students for careers in every sector of the agricultural and food service industry, from food production and distribution to agricultural business and education.
The Agricultural Business Management B.S. or B.T. degrees combine a solid foundation in agricultural business with the opportunity to specialize in Agricultural Education, AgriEnterprise or Equine Business Management. All students in the bachelor’s programs have the opportunity to gain real world experience and a competitive edge, through a 15-credit internship. The Agricultural Business and Agricultural Science associate degree programs allow students to take courses in agricultural economics, agricultural business operations, farm management and marketing.
The Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management degrees prepare students for successful careers through strong hands-on education, dedicated faculty, environmental awareness, and appropriate technology. The Culinary Arts Management B.B.A. includes a 12 credit internship and associate degree students must complete a required summer work experience. Four culinary laboratories and a USDA inspected meat processing facility provide the students with the opportunity to work with commercial equipment and facilities, including American Heritage - a student operated on campus restaurant.
