Bainbridge State College’s Health Sciences and Professional Studies division recently announced the addition of its newest program, Agribusiness—a program that is sure to help students grow in the field of both agriculture and business.

Students interested in agriculture and business will find the Agribusiness programs and Bainbridge State College can put them on the path to success. The programs are designed to provide the foundation for a great start in the agribusiness field.

Pat Thompson, BSC Agribusiness Program Coordinator, said, “”This is an awesome opportunity for BSC to provide Agricultural programs of study to enhance the education and employment opportunities in the largest farm gate producing area in the state of Georgia.”

There are four tracks for the BSC Agribusiness Program, which are the Agribusiness Associate Degree, Agribusiness diploma, Agribusiness Policy Specialist Certificate, and the Precision Agriculture Specialist Certificate.

The Agribusiness Associate Degree program is designed for students interested in businesses and economics of agribusiness firms. They will analyze the risks and uncertainties of agribusiness production, marketing, natural resources and government involvement.

With the Agribusiness diploma program students are prepared to work in a variety of agribusiness-related fields such as agriculture production, management, mid-management and marketing. The Agribusiness Policy Specialist Certificate enables students to understand the relationship between agribusiness and the political system, as well as the involvement of government in agribusiness.

Finally, the Precision Agriculture Specialist Certificate drives production agriculture in farming which leads to reduced input costs and more profitable yields. Its technology combines geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) to scientifically manage resources and outputs in production agriculture.

Classes for the Agribusiness program at Bainbridge State College will begin spring 2016 semester.
