The Agricultural Science – Online curriculum has three components:

  1. General education courses are required for all students at NC State University.
  2. Leadership and/or communication courses taught within the department. Students complete coursework in contemporary leadership theories, personal leadership development, team leadership, and organizational leadership which they apply to complete their senior seminar in leadership. In these courses, students develop relationships with each other and with department faculty.
  3. A broad overview of agriculture. Students complete coursework in both basic agricultural courses (animal science or poultry science, plant science, and agricultural technology) as well as specialty areas in agriculture. Students select two specialty areas to study. Students may use these concentration areas to secure two minors from within CALS.
