Agricultural Programs at the Post High School Level; Special Report Prepared for the Pacific Regional Seminar in Agricultural Education (Olympia, May 15-19, 1967).
Hensel, James W.
A general overview of post-high school education in agriculture is presented to show the wide variety of programs and their curricular structure for use by school administrators. Representative agricultural programs in community colleges, junior colleges, vocational and technical schools, area schools, and in specialized technical training programs in colleges of agriculture were selected and described from catalogues and brochures sent to The Center for Vocational and Technical Education from 60 schools in 20 states. Programs were classified into areas of agricultural mechanics, agricultural business, plant and soil science, animal science, forestry and conservation, production agriculture, and other agriculture programs. Most institutions described a wide range of opportunities for high school graduates in all phases of agriculturally related occupations. The appendixes contain course descriptions by state and a 1966-67 directory of 1- and 2-year post-high school institutions offering programs of instruction in agriculture. (DM)
