Butler's Agriculture Program is designed to meet the needs of any student interested in a career in agriculture or any related field. Each year we have students enter the program who are interested in pursuing a four-year agriculture degree upon completion of their coursework at Butler. Additionally, we serve many students wishing to receive the necessary educational background to return to production agriculture. With both students in mind we have developed a diverse program with course and majors designed to meet everyone's needs. In a two year cycle we offer over 40 agriculture courses to our students. This amazing number of course offerings gives our students a variety of options challenging to find at the community college level.
For those students wishing to return to a family operation or enter directly into production agriculture we also offer two-year degrees in Livestock Management and Farm & Ranch Management along with a one-year Agriculture Certificate program. In addition to classroom learning a great deal of emphasis is placed on outside the classroom, hands-on learning experiences in each of these degree options.
Finally, Pre-Veterinary Medicine is a popular choice for many students. Butler offers a tremendous science curriculum to compliment the animal science related coursework necessary for those interested in applying for vet school.
