Department Overview: Agricultural systems is an interdisciplinary science, which systematically analyzes the interactions between the natural, human, climatic, political and economic components of the agroecosystem. The Agricultural Systems degree at WWCC provides successful students with a broad and complete understanding of these complex interactions. Students will learn to adjust current pathways as well as identify new pathways to minimize the many potential negative effects on environmental, societal and human health. In addition to classes in foundational agricultural knowledge, like that of basic soil, plant and animal science, students will be engaged in topics such as agroecology, policy, technology and sustainability to develop their critical thinking skills. This perspective is essential for meeting the increasing demands placed on today’s agricultural systems. The Agricultural Systems degree prepares students to make an active contribution to the agricultural industry through hands-on exposure to diverse experiences and perspectives grounded in applied science and reality. Students who achieve a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Agricultural Systems may also continue their education and enroll in graduate programs.
