Future Students

Interested in an Associates of Science (AS) degree in Agriculture?

A degree in Agriculture is ideal for students interested in applying science to real world problems

The AS in Agricultural Sciences degree is designed for students interested in transferring to a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Agricultural Science degree program. For an example of such a program, visit the Agricultural Sciences (BS) page at Texas A&M University-Commerce which has a transfer agreement with Grayson College. A student completing the Agricultural Sciences AS degree at Grayson College can transfer into a BS program with their Freshman and Sophomore years completed.

Specific Agricultural Science courses can transfer into more specialized degree programs such as Animal Science or Horticulture with guidance from the Grayson College faculty mentor for Agriculture, Dr. Ellen Melson.
