Students enrolled in the Agriculture Program at Kaskaskia College can earn an Associate in Applied Science Degree by completing studies in any of three areas, Agriculture Business, Agriculture Production or Dairy. These options require a core of 13 courses in Agriculture and approximately seven general education courses. In order to obtain a degree under the Agriculture Business option, students will enroll in five additional Agricultural courses that emphasize the business side of agriculture including sales and management. Students enrolled in the Agriculture Production option will complete four courses unique to this option that emphasize the technical and mechanical side of production agriculture including engines, harvesting, and air conditioning. Dairy option students will enroll in four Agriculture courses that emphasize dairy production. Students can also earn a one–year certificate in Agriculture Machinery. Extensive on–the-job experience is included in all programs.

All degree options prepare the student for entry level positions in the workforce, or can serve as a transfer degree if the graduate chooses to continue his or her education at a four year university.
