Agricultural Sciences — A Very Iowa Ag Program

Given our location, you’d think we’d offer an outstanding Iowa ag program. You’d be right! Farming is the backbone of our state’s economy, and few career paths offer you the chance to help more people live better than ag. Our ag programs at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa are the place to start or improve your career in agriculture.

Agriculture, or "Ag," at Indian Hills includes a wide variety of interesting and meaningful careers, everything from landscaping technology to animal science to precision farming.

You don’t need to have grown up on a farm to have a career in agriculture. Students from all walks of life are finding high-paying jobs and great career satisfaction in a variety of ag-related fields (no pun intended).
