Goshen County continues to lead the state of Wyoming in most areas of Ag production and students that come here are encouraged to take full advantage of this. Most students find part-time, Ag-related jobs in the community. In fact, our Farm and Ranch Management program includes an internship.
Students have a few options when it comes to choosing a degree path. The Associate of Science degree in Agri-Business and Sciences has four emphases: General Agriculture, Plant Science/Agronomy, Animal Science and Ag-Business. This degree is designed to give students a broad understanding in the field of agriculture and also take courses in a designated area of interest.
The AS degree is for students who plan to enroll in a four-year school after EWC. Farm and Ranch Management is an Associate of Applied Science degree. These students will take courses in ag-business, animal science, as well as plant science, to ensure they are ready to enter the work force immediately following graduation. Possible jobs with this degree include: farm or ranch management, feedlot management, sales (feed, fertilizer, seed),or machinery and equipment dealerships, just to name a few. We also offer a Beef Production Certificate. This is a one year program for students who would like to learn more about the beef industry.
We believe Eastern Wyoming College provides a unique environment that fosters academic success. Our small class sizes coupled with hands-on learning activities and faculty expertise make EWC a great stepping stone
for students wishing to pursue a bachelor’s degree or those planning to enter the work force after graduation. Whatever your plans may be, let us help you get there.
