Agriculture, food and natural resources
Agriculture is Washington State’s largest industry
Agriculture careers involve the production, processing and marketing of agricultural products and services, including food, fiber, wood products, natural resources and horticulture. Other options include management of natural resources such as water, forests and animals.
Many careers demand a solid background in math and science, excellent communication skills and a variety of technical skills. Most community college programs combine classroom learning with hands-on, real-world experiences.
Most programs last two years, at which point students receive an associate's degree. Agriculture pre-majors transfer to four-year universities. Some programs offer shorter certificates. Other paths provide skills for entry-level jobs and high-skill careers. Be sure to work with a counselor to develop your personalized educational plan.
