About the Agriculture Program Degrees at CNCC

CNCC sits in the heart of rural agriculture and western culture, and with the agriculture and equine program, we try and utilize aspects of this environment in the classroom. Here, you can choose to between 2 different agriculture related degrees, and 3 equine degrees. The agriculture degrees include: associate of science in agriculture business or an associate of science in animal science. Both of these degrees are fully transferable to Colorado State University, and have common transferability to land grant institutions where these degrees could transfer to the bachelor’s level. The equine degrees include: associate of science in equine science, associate of applied science in equine training and management, or associate of applied science in equine studies and management. The agriculture program also offers a certificate in agriculture science that covers general introductory level agriculture courses.

Exciting Agriculture Program Highlights

  • We have a low instructor to student ratio – we often have 5-10 students in majority of the classes. There are a few that may have a little more, but it is only 1 or 2 classes of all the program classes you would take.
  • Our instructors are the BEST! They put in countless hours of their time to work with students on their coursework. This could be at the barn, or in the classroom. They truly want to see everyone succeed, and a student’s success is really in their own hands. Our instructors will help turn their goals into reality.
  • You can bring your horse to college with you! Even if you do not use your personal horse in a class, you can still bring it and house it at the same facility as where we offer our equine classes.

Our instructors strive to have hands-on real world application brought into the classroom. This includes projects and assignments that come from real life examples and situations, to working with other programs at the college to create a well rounded product, or even as simple as having live animal projects that integrate coursework.
