Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts AG Degrees

Since the fall of 1994, the University of Idaho and the College of Southern Idaho have worked together to provide a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture right here in the Magic Valley. They offer four degrees, Agriculture Science and Technology, Animal Science, Horticulture, and Plant Science. These programs build on CSI's Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees, with the University of Idaho offering the third and fourth year classes. The Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Science and Technology can be attained through the UI Twin Falls Research and Extension Center on the CSI campus.

This unique program relies on a variety of methods for course delivery: videotaped sessions, interactive microwave, interactive compressed video, cable and wireless transmission, Internet and of course, onsite instruction.
