MACC's Associate of Applied Science - Agriculture Technology program is designed to help students develop the necessary skills to become efficient farmers or to prepare for a technical career in agriculture. Over the past couple of decades, there have been many great technological advancements in the agriculture industry which have created a high demand for technical skills to perform basic maintenance and repairs on farm implements. MACC reached out to leaders in the agriculture industry to help develop and design these courses to give students the relevant knowledge and skills to become successful in the field of agriculture. If you are ready for a program with a strong hands-on learning experience in agriculture, contact MACC today to learn more about our two-year degree in Agriculture Technology.

Academic Map

This academic map is a suggested semester-by-semester schedule of courses based upon the AAS degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific milestones, courses, and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. To ensure that milestone courses are completed, it is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

*It is strongly recommended that students successfully complete the Milestone courses as planned on the academic map to ensure completion of the degree in two years. In addition, if students do not successfully complete the Milestone course(s), they are strongly encouraged to re-enroll in the course(s) the following semester. 

**All fundamental math and English courses (e.g. MTH015) must be completed during the first semester. Required math and English courses must be completed immediately following the completion of fundamentals coursework or as listed on the degree map. Enrollment in fundamentals courses may delay completion of the degree. Fundamentals Courses are not included in the total credit hours required for the degree. 

^Please refer to the college catalog and course descriptions for pre/co-requisite and placement information. You can only register for these courses if you have met the prerequisite, placed into the course and/or enroll in the co-requisite course(s).

 

Additional Graduation Requirement
Missouri law, included in Senate Bill 807, requires every college student pursuing an associate’s or bachelor's degree at a public institution to pass the Missouri Higher Education Civics Achievement Examination with at least a 70 percent to graduate. The rule will apply to the incoming class of first-time college students in the fall of 2019 and all students thereafter.
