Department of Biology and Chemistry
Agricultural Plant and Soil Sciences
The Agricultural Plant and Soil Sciences B.S. (AGPS) program features small classes, broadly trained and diverse faculty, and internship and research opportunities that provide hands-on experience in the food and agriculture industry.
Monterey Bay is a prime location for students interested in agriculture careers. Salinas and Pajaro Valley, two of the nation’s leaders in vegetable and berry production, are only a short drive away from campus.
The skills gained throughout the AGPS program help prepare students for careers as agronomists, crop production consultants, pest control advisors, research associates, advancement to graduate-level programs and much more.
