Alternative Agriculture Production (AAS.ALAG)

This core curriculum is designed for those students who are planning a career in alternative agriculture production including farming, ag production sales, and management or ownerships in these areas. The fundamentals of Agroecology, the incorporation of biological pest management, as well as sustainable crop and livestock production will be emphasized. While this curriculum is designed for immediate placement in alternative agriculture production, it also allows transferability to Illinois State, Southern Illinois, and Western Illinois universities.



Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
