What is an online course in agricultural science? This description could be given to anything from a semester's exploration of a single subject to a program intended to confer a postgraduate degree upon the student. A course on the care of horses could be an example of a single topic course in this subject. An undergraduate degree online might cover animal husbandry and care subjects along with others, such as environmental law and organic farming practices. Graduate programs may go into great detail on subjects like agronomy or turf grass management. Agricultural sciences programs often promote or require competency in mathematics and the life sciences.
The benefits of taking an online course in agricultural sciences include the acquisition of specific scientific knowledge as well as establishment of scientific habits and rigor. Specific knowledge can prepare students for possible advancement in academic fields, and general scientific experience can make for more attractive candidates for technical positions.
The cost for some online courses is much different than others, depending on the type of course material. Checking with the institutions is the only way to know how much each program costs.
Job prospects for graduates of online agricultural science programs are as varied as the programs themselves. A student might expect to find employment as a lab technician at soil testing facilities or government regulatory agencies that enforce farming or food safety policies. Lab technicians perform tests using specialized equipment and accurately record results. Those who obtain a graduate degree through an online course might have an opportunity to become an assistant professor at a college or university. This position involves leading undergraduate and graduate courses and pursuing personal research.
