A diploma program is a great choice if you want to get hands-on experience in a particular field without spending a lot of time on general education requirements. Diploma programs are focused, hands-on studies that generally take only a year or two to complete.

What is a diploma in agricultural science, you ask? A program with this general theme may focus on green agriculture, such as eco-friendly farming and livestock-raising, or it may have a broader theme within the world of agriculture. In any case, your studies will most likely include conserving resources, both natural and financial, as well as increasing profit and planning for the future of agriculture. Other basic courses include chemistry, soil science, plant biology and food safety and quality.

The skills learned in an agricultural sciences diploma program will likely serve you well as you progress through the ranks of farm management or animal husbandry. The more you learn and practice, the better your chances are likely to be of finding a fulfilling career in agriculture.

As with any educational program, costs vary from country to country and school to school. Once you find a program that looks promising, get in touch with the school offering it and ask directly about program costs.

Once you have earned your diploma in agricultural science, you can go on to pursue a career in animal husbandry, plantation management, farm management or agricultural research. You may be able to find work consulting with small agricultural operations, helping local farmers design and implement manageable quality control, waste management and pest control systems. Or, you may end up working as a stock agent or something of that nature.

Finding online options for agricultural studies may be helpful if you are already working in a related field. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
