Dyersburg State Community College is gearing up to offer two new educational opportunities in agriculture this fall.
Both will prepare students for careers in the growing agricultural industry. Students will learn where food comes from, as well as the future of the green industry and how it relates to agriculture.
The first opportunity is the associate of science in agriculture or natural resources management concentration degree program. It is set up so students who complete their associate degree through DSCC can transfer with junior standing into the agriculture or natural resources management major at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
The second opportunity is academic certificate in agriculture applications program.
This certificate can be completed in one year. The coursework required will help students understand concepts related to commercial agriculture production and how modern agriculture competes in a global economy.
Classes for both programs are offered at both the Dyersburg campus and at the DSCC Jimmy Naifeh Center at Tipton County.
Aug. 20 is the last day to apply for admission to DSCC for the fall semester. Classes begin Aug. 28.
