California State University, Stanislaus
Agricultural Studies B.A. Concentration in Special Concentration
The Bachelor of Arts in Agricultural Studies is a multidisciplinary program that blends the contributions of a number of academic departments through upper division core courses and four concentrations: Agricultural Biology, Agricultural Business / Economics, Permaculture, and a special concentration. The program encourages students to explore diverse approaches to agricultural production, distribution, and management in evolving economic and environmental settings. Experiential learning and applied research opportunities are offered through these concentrations.
The major fosters sustainable relationships with area community colleges through the implementation of a "2+2" program design. Individuals who have an A.S. degree or equivalent lower-division course work in Agriculture, Agricultural Science, Agricultural Economics and closely related fields, and who complete the designated lower-division prerequisite courses, may participate in the program. Individuals currently employed will be admitted contingent on their completion of course requirements.
The Special Concentration will provide options within the Agricultural Studies major that offer flexibility in the career choice objectives of the students in the CSUS Agricultural Studies Program. This concentration presents the unique opportunity to combine core courses and Upper Division requirements with courses, outside of the program, which fulfill a student`s educational and career goals. The result is a concentration geared towards specific student objectives, while at the same time, maintaining the integrity of the Bachelor of Arts degree in Agricultural Studies.
