The agriculture program at Ivy Tech Community College engages students in hands-on activities in and outside of their classrooms while preparing them for real-world agriculture careers. The program focus is primarily in the areas of: Livestock Production, Agronomy, Agriculture Equipment, and AgriBusiness. Students are exposed to various areas in the agriculture industry through field experiences and professional guest speaker presentations. To enhance the student experience, the agriculture program has partnerships with industry organizations such as: John Deere, Case IH, Ceres Solutions, Co-Alliance, Becks Hybrids, Dow AgroSciences, Monsanto, Belstra Milling Company, Fair Oaks Farms and other local growers, producers, and agribusinesses. Students will spend a significant amount of class time completing hands-on activities with the ability to have one-on-one time with instructors.
Graduates of the Agriculture program can enter directly into the agriculture workforce in exciting, competitive paying careers or they may transfer to many of our four-year partners.
Current partners include: Purdue University, Trine University, Indiana State University, Illinois State University, Colorado State University (online), Southern Illinois University, Indiana University (Regional Campuses only), and Huntington University.
