What Will I Learn?
Our department ensures that all students in the program are getting an education with cutting edge information and top quality instructors. Our full-time faculty provide students with a wide range of expertise and instruction to prepare them for their chosen careers.
Students in the department are exposed to many aspects of both agriculture and horticulture through guest speakers, field trips and hands-on instruction. In addition, individualized academic advising is provided to our students to ensure proper course selection. This is especially important for our transfer degree students to enable a seamless transition from JJC to a four year agriculture or horticulture program of their choice.
Student social groups such as the Student Agriculture Association (SAA), the Student Horticulture Association (SHA), the Post-Secondary Agriculture Student Organization (PAS) and the Collegiate Farm Bureau provide students opportunities to engage in social activities and develop leadership skills. Also, many scholarships and awards are available especially for JJC agriculture students.
What is Unique About Our Programs?
Our Associate in Applied Science degrees include a required on-job-training course. Students are placed in paid, full-time internship experiences nationwide and are supervised regularly on-site by JJC staff. Students who enter full-time employment following graduation can expect 4-8 job opportunities from which to choose while those who plan to transfer to other institutions will find JJC credits accepted nationwide.
