THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE prepares students for careers in agriculture and related professions. Courses provide a broad foundation in the basic sciences, a general knowledge of the applied sciences, and a reasonable number of cultural subjects. Most of the basic science courses are given in the freshman and sophomore years and serve as a basis for a better understanding of the applied subjects, usually taken in the junior and senior years.

A curriculum is offered in Agricultural Business and Economics, Agricultural Journalism, Agricultural Science, Agronomy and Soils, Animal and Dairy Sciences, Fisheries Management, Horticulture, Entomology-Integrated Pest Management, Poultry Science and Rural Sociology. Students who wish to major in other agricultural fields should consult with the Dean.

The College of Agriculture also furnishes the subject matter training in Agriculture for the curricula of Agricultural Engineering and Agribusiness Education.

Transfer credit will not normally be allowed for any course passed with a grade lower than C at any other college or university.

Transfer credit for agricultural subjects not considered equivalent to those required in the chosen curriculum may be substituted for elective credit; however, duplication of credit will not be allowed. Equivalency of agricultural subjects will be determined by the Dean's Office; however, students may also obtain transfer credit on the basis of validating examinations. Arrangements for validating examinations must be made with the Dean of Agriculture in the first quarter of enrollment in the College of Agriculture at Auburn and the examinations must be completed before the middle of the second quarter. Transfer credit for courses which are upper-division courses at AU will not be accepted from two-year colleges.

Pre-Veterinary Medicine

It is possible to gain admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine upon completion of the minimum requirements listed below. Students may declare an option upon admission to the College of Agriculture and must declare an option by the end of their freshman year. If students are admitted to the College of Veterinary Medicine after the completion of all the requirements in the first three years of the option, they may obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in the option after completion of the freshman year in the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The minimum requirements for admission to the College of Veterinary Medicine, Auburn University (111 quarter hours), are incorporated in the first three years of the options listed under the following curricula: Animal and Dairy Sciences, Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures, and Poultry Science.

Dual Degree Program With Engineering

This program gives students the opportunity to receive two baccalaureate degrees - one in agriculture and one in engineering. Although the program was developed primarily for students desiring a combination of a biological sciences program with an engineering program, it does not preclude the consideration of other Agriculture-Engineering combinations.

In general, students will be enrolled in the College of Agriculture for approximately three years and in the College of Engineering for approximately two years. During the first three years, the students should take those mathematics, physics and chemistry courses necessary to allow them to transfer to the College of Engineering. Additionally, before transferring to the College of Engineering, they should have completed approximately three-fourths of the total hours required by the College of Agriculture for the awarding of the degree.

To become dual-degree candidates under this program, students must have GPAs which indicate the likelihood of satisfactory completion of College of Engineering degree requirements and a recommendation from the Dean of the College of Agriculture. The recommendation should be sought one quarter before the expected transfer to the College of Engineering.

It is also possible for qualified students to transfer to the College of Engineering following the junior year with the intent of seeking a master's degree rather than a bachelor's degree in one of the engineering disciplines. Consult the Engineering Dean's Office concerning this option.

Agricultural Business and Economics

The Agricultural Business and Economics curriculum provides broad technical training and a strong liberal arts background to prepare students for careers in agribusiness, the largest industry in the U.S.

While the AGEC student may choose a general program of study, selection of one of three career tracks can provide more directed specialized training in Agribusiness Management and Marketing, Farm Management or Natural Resources Management. The Agribusiness track emphasizes training in management, marketing/sales and finance. Employment opportunities may involve such areas as management, sales, finance, government, public relations or personnel. The Farm Management track provides training in management and decision-making at the farm level along with the technical aspects of production agriculture. Graduates can pursue careers in the farm sector as owner-operators or managers. Employment opportunities for graduates of the Natural Resources Management track will increase over time as resource scarcity, environmental and rural development issues become more critical. Public institutions which are entrusted with managing and safeguarding our natural resource endowment are primary employers of graduates in this area. Students who forego the career tracks and opt for a general program of study can design it to help them reach their goals and help ensure a rewarding career. Beyond the identified career areas, graduates of the program complete advanced degrees in the discipline and in business and law schools.

Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural Engineering students receive academic training that addresses the engineering of biosystems and natural resource systems. The goal of the program is to educate engineers grounded in both basis engineering principles and the principles and processes involved in biosystems, natural resources and related industries. The degree program is designed to teach students to solve engineering problems by investigating key aspects of a system. They learn to identify and understand the interrelation of separate components. The program contains a strong foundation of engineering courses common to all engineering students, including courses in mathematics, physics, computer applications and the engineering sciences. Building on these fundamentals, a broad spectrum of additional topics in required courses in engineering, plant and animal sciences, biological sciences and natural resources addresses engineering problems found in biosystems. The student is introduced to the process of engineering design early in required AGEN courses. Each AGEN course incorporates design fundamentals specific to the problems being taught. This broad educational experience is focused on a real-world engineering problem in a two-quarter senior design experience. The student is part of a design team that develops a solution to a problem presented by a cooperating industrial partner. Through this capstone design experience, the student is able to bring together many aspects of their engineering education in solving a problem. The Agricultural Engineering graduate is well equipped to solve engineering problems in the interface between the physical and biological world.

Careers for graduates include design, development, consulting, management, sales, testing, construction, research and other functions that engineers fulfill. They find positions in environmental management and protection, machine development, irrigation and water management, natural resource conservation, process engineering, structural design and computer and automatic control system applications. They work in their own firms or for manufacturers, consultants, governmental agencies, processors, etc. Graduates can pursue advanced degrees in engineering, business, science, law and other fields.

The curriculum is coordinated by the colleges of Engineering and Agriculture. Students register in Engineering and are assigned an academic adviser in AGEN. Beginning students should apply for admission to the College of Engineering and complete the Pre-Agricultural Engineering program. For qualified agricultural students who develop an interest in AGEN during their freshman year, an alternate course sequence for completion of the Pre-Agricultural Engineering program under the guidance of an AGEN adviser is available in the College of Agriculture. See the College of Engineering section for program objectives, career opportunities, admission, degree requirements and curriculum model.

Agricultural Journalism

The Agricultural Journalism major provides graduates with training in a wide range of agricultural courses and a strong background in journalism.

Most large agricultural firms, plus many magazine companies, publish agricultural material regularly for the general public and members of their organizations. Editors and writers of such publications need a knowledge of agricultural subject matter and terminology, as well as skill in writing. Likewise, Cooperative Extension Services and Agricultural Research Information Departments hire a wide variety of agricultural journalism graduates.

Animal and Dairy Sciences (ANSC)

Two curriculum options are available within the ANSC Department to accommodate students with varied career goals and prepare them for leadership careers in livestock and related industries. The Agribusiness/Muscle Foods/Production option offers students flexibility in designing a program by selection of professional electives. Upon completion of this option, graduates should be qualified for career opportunities in livestock production, journalism, extension, livestock feed/nutrition, pharmaceutical industry, sales and merchandising, agricultural finance, governmental and private agencies and industries related to the processing of meat products.

Contemporary animal agriculture is expanding into a "high tech" era which needs graduates with basic science backgrounds to aid in discovery and development of new concepts for animal production. The Pre-Veterinary/Basic-Science (ADPV) option provides students with a foundation in biological and physical science necessary for entry into graduate programs in biotechnology and related disciplines while satisfying prerequisites for veterinary school. Postgraduate studies are necessary for most positions in teaching, extension and research at universities and allied animal industries, as well as areas of biotechnology.
