This option is for students who are not sure what area they would like to specialize in and would like basic training in a number of agricultural subjects. It is recommended for training for professions which involve a broad knowledge of agriculture—operators and managers of general farms, county agricultural agents, agricultural writers, and many other types of commercial agricultural positions. Encouraged are electives with the following prefixes: AGEC, AGRI, AGTK, ANSC, CROP, ELTR, EQST, MCHT, REWM, and WELD.

Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a “C” or better.
