Agriculture is a vital component of our local, state, and national economies and offers many exciting employment opportunities. In addition to the production of a wide range of valuable agricultural commodities, the Sacramento region is home to numerous multi-national agricultural corporations and statewide governmental agencies. It is also a center for international agricultural trade and commerce.
The agriculture business program is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year college/university in agriculture business, or immediate employment in an entry-level ag business related career. Future employment options in agriculture include management and supervision, finance, insurance, government, marketing, distribution, international trade, and sales.
Some positions, however, require a four year degree for which CRC's program is a good base for transfer.
Note to Transfer Students:
If you are interested in transferring to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in this major, it is critical that you meet with a CRC counselor to select and plan the courses for your major. Schools vary widely in terms of the required preparation. The courses that CRC requires for an associate’s degree in this major may be different from the requirements needed for the bachelor’s degree.
