Why Agriculture?

The agriculture industry touches every American life. There are many jobs available besides being a farmer. As the world population increases, the need for an educated agricultural workforce increases.


Why Kilgore College Ag?

Kilgore College provides students with a unique mix of hands-on education with expert faculty. We think the best way of learning is to do it. We operate a 448 acre farm with cattle, hay, fruit, and vegetable crops. We employ students to help with the farm and also coordinate internships with faculty from the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Overton.


What do graduates of the program do?

Our program is designed to prepare students to transfer to an ag program at a four-year institution. By providing hands-on experiences through coursework, employment, internships, and Ag Student Association participation, we prepare our students to be at the top of the class in their future ag courses. We provide guidance to our students to enable them to complete their four-year degree with as few units as possible.


What is the job outlook for graduates?

There are numerous positions requiring a Bachelor’s degree in an agricultural science field beyond simply farming. Positions include plant breeding, consulting, marketing, food safety, regulatory, research, and extension.


What kind of salary can graduates expect locally and nationally?

Salaries vary in this field depending on position and level of education.


How long does it take to complete the program?

The program takes two years to complete. During this time, students will complete their core curriculum, take introductory courses in all ag fields, and qualify for a associates degree in science.
