Agricultural Education Technology Partnership - Associate of Science Degree

60 Credits
AS 3129
Degree Description

The need for agricultural educators has created a unique partnership between South Central College and the University of Minnesota. The key is that this is not a regular transfer program. The 2 + 2 Partnership program allows learners to complete their first two years at SCC and apply every course toward a 4-year Ag Education degree from the University of Minnesota.  All of the SCC credits in this program will be applied to a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural, Food and Environmental Education at the University of Minnesota, with a specialization in Agricultural Science and Technology Education. Learners' advisors will work with them to make sure that all your courses meet degree requirements. Please note that courses are subject to change. Some courses are delivered through interactive television (ITV) and online distance technologies. By working with the University of Minnesota to develop this partnership program, South Central College has given individuals a great start toward a life impacting career in Agricultural Education.
