University Majors

California State University, Chico
Agriculture B.S. Crops, Horticulture, and Land Resource Management Option

The BS in Agriculture covers agriscience and technology. Options are offered in agriscience and education; and crops, horticulture, and land resource management. State-of- the-art procedures reflect the science-based nature of agriculture and natural resource management in the 21st century. A student can choose either to concentrate in a single option or emphasize a broad overview. The program is designed for "hands-on" learning. A rigorous industry-based internship program, undergraduate research experiences and a variety of learning activities at the University Farm, also known as the Agricultural Teaching and Research Center give this program its reputation for student-centered learning.

The Option in Crops, Horticulture, and Land Resource Management prepares students to manage agricultural enterprises for the production of plant crops for human and animal consumption, for the protection of these crops and resources against pests (insects, diseases, weeds, vertebrates), and for the stewardship of their natural resources (soil, water, air, and biota). The option emphasizes sustainable land use and crop production practices. Career opportunities may be found in the agricultural production industry, in agricultural research, and in agricultural consulting, assistance, and regulation.
