Associate of Applied Science, NWC Skills Certificate

This program is designed to provide marketable, entry level training for students wanting to return to the work force after one or two years of college education.  The Associate of Applied Science program stresses the applied aspects of crop and livestock production, as well as business management.  It provides a background in marketing finance and management along with technical knowledge in rangeland, animal, crop, and soil sciences.  The one-year certificate curriculum has fewer general education classes and more focus on hands-on learning in agriculture-specific courses.
