About the Degree
As farm and land management has grown more complex and costly, farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural managers have increasingly needed postsecondary education, such as an associate's degree or bachelor's degree in agriculture or a related field. The Associate of Science in Agriculture Technology degree provides students the diverse skillsets necessary to work competently in various sectors of the agriculture industry. Additionally, the program prepares those students with the foundational knowledge necessary to transfer to a four-year program in agriculture or a related field. Students should check with their intended transfer institution to ensure transferability.

On the Road to Your A.S. in Agriculture Technology
Students can achieve multiple milestones while progressing toward an Associate of Science degree in Agriculture Technology. Students can earn the Technical Certificate in Agriculture Technology (24 credit hours) which provides students with an array of agricultural knowledge necessary to begin working in various sectors of the agriculture industry. Certificates of Proficiency in Animal Science (9 credit hours), Plant Science (9 credit hours), Soil Science (9 credit hours) are also achievable.

Alert Message

Campus community,

Cases of COVID-19 continue to increase in Arkansas and in our region.  Earlier today, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees passed a resolution for campuses to implement mask wearing policies.  The UACCB Administrative Cabinet has reenacted Campus Procedure 220.20, Face Coverings and Social Distancing for Student, Employees, Guests, and Visitors.  

Effective immediately, UACCB will require all students, employees, guests, and visitors to wear masks indoors.  

This revision of Campus Procedure 220.20 is tied to CDC data regarding the level of community transmission for our area.  We will utilize a “stop light” indicator system, depending on the level of community transmission:

RED: The level of community transmission is high or substantial, masks are required.
YELLOW: The level of community transmission is moderate, masks are recommended.
GREEN: The level of community transmission is low, normal campus normal operations are in effect.

Our area is currently in RED: the level of community transmission is high, and masks are required.

The UACCB Administrative Cabinet will monitor the CDC rating and will evaluate the scale weekly.  This is a small step we can take to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure we can maintain in-person learning.

Thank you.

Zach Perrine

Interim Chancellor
