DMACC Agribusiness students have weekly lectures at FFA Enrichment Center and farm labs at Dallas County Farm that coincide with normal farm operations such as planting, harvesting, daily animal care, and everything in-between. Farm labs take place in the Fall and Summer semesters. The spring semester is a condensed, shortened term in which classes take place in the FFA Enrichment Center, but students are released for spring internships at approximately the end of March. Students may apply and interview for an internship working at the DMACC Dallas County Farm or find another business to work of their interest within the Agribusiness industry.
The DMACC Agribusiness program is a comprehensive Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree that prepares students for the rapidly expanding food, fiber and natural resources industry.
Within this program students learn agronomy, animal science, farm management and agricultural supply and service.
In addition to earning the Agribusiness AAS, students can also focus their training and credentials through certificates of specialization.
