For high school Ag students looking for a related major check out Brigham Young University-Idaho’s Ag program. Officials there have made some changes they hope will enhance and strengthen their offerings for students on campus.
Van Christman, Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Science at the University since April of 2010, said they want to prepare students to fill the large number of Ag-related jobs there are in the workplace.
“There are a lot of jobs out there and we are making some changes in our Department of Agriculture to better prepare students for those. We would also like to attract more students to those programs,” he said.
The Department of Agriculture added a new B.S. in Food Science major during the summer after it was approved by the Board of Trustees. It is in the process of hiring two food-science faculty members to help shape the major, the Dean said.
