Agriculture & Veterinary Technology

Printer-friendly version

Agriculture students participate in hands-on experiences working with crops, plants, animals, facilities, and equipment. Graduates leave our programs with a true feel for the industry they plan to enter. Veterinary technology students are prepared to sit for the Veterinary Technology National Exam (VTNE) through intensive lecture and laboratory courses. Passage of this exam is required for licensure as a veterinary technician. Veterinary technology students are also required to complete a 240-hour preceptorship (work experience), which gives them real, practical experience between completing their first year and graduation. Students have many opportunities to help tell the story of agriculture at college-hosted events for elementary and high school students, educators, and the general public. Through the agricultural and veterinary technology clubs, students help organize dairy and livestock shows, consignment sales, judging competitions, agricultural skills contests, tours, and other educational events.

Mission

Provide educational opportunities to our students that will produce well rounded, critical thinkers who are well prepared for their professional careers.
