Welcome to Western's Agriculture Sciences website!
Here at Western Oklahoma State College students can prepare for an exciting career in the rapidly changing field of agriculture. Our goal is to help students earn a two-year degree in agriculture where they can then enter the job market or transfer to a four-year institution.
Western Oklahoma State College offers high quality courses designed to fulfill the lower level requirements at a four-year university. Because departmental requirements vary at universities, students are strongly urged to consult a faculty advisor. Associate's degrees offered include:
- Agriculture Sciences
- Agriculture Business
- Pre-Veterinary Animal Science
The Agriculture Department also offers a certificate of mastery in Farm & Ranch Management. This certificate program is designed to help students apply knowledge gained through the program to a career in the farm or ranch industry.
The Western Oklahoma State College Agriculture Program and the local Ag Advisory Board work together to sponsor the Western Agriculture Scholarship program. This program focuses on awarding students majoring in Agriculture with scholarship funds to aid with obtaining a degree from Western. High school seniors with an interest in pursuing an AS degree in Agriculture are highly encouraged to apply for a scholarship. See the link for the Western agriculture scholarship below.
