The Montana State University-Northern Applied Agriculture Minor is designed to provide four-year degree majors with primary coursework in the agricultural sciences and applied agriculture technology.
Agricultural Sciences – Explore plant and animal sciences, including soils, crop production, and livestock management.
Agricultural Technology – Discover the ways technology is changing farming and ranching practices with classes on agricultural computing, Global Positioning Systems, and Geographic Information Systems.
Ag as a Business – Learn how trends and issues in agriculture affect economic development in rural areas.
In conjunction with a four-year degree in a non-agriculture major, Applied Agriculture students have a well-rounded education that prepares them for a variety of careers. Many MSU-Northern AAS Agricultural Technology students choose to proceed with a non-ag four-year degree and add the Applied Agriculture Minor. Some agriculturally related fields are expected to grow as the market continues to change.
