Agriculture / Horticulture / Veterinary Science Career Pathways

 

 

 

 


 

One of the broadest pathways offered at GICA, Agriculture, Horticulture and Veterinary Science offers a wide spectrum of career study curriculums leading to rewarding employment opportunities.

Agricultural scientists play an important part in maintaining and increasing the nation’s agricultural productivity. Job opportunities in agriscience are many, from developing ways to improve the quantity and quality of farm crops and animals to researching methods of converting raw commodities into attractive and healthy food products. Those working in the forestry and natural resources field conserve and manage our forests and related resources. Opportunities in the fields of education, research, golf and sports turf, landscape design, parks and gardens, public service, production management, and sales and marketing are offered. Other jobs include landscape designer, greenhouse manager, golf course superintendent, plant breeder, florist, agricultural chemical researcher and garden center owner. The Veterinary Science track introduces students to the care of small animals and provides a preliminary foundation for advanced study on the post-secondary level.
