College of Agriculture
The CAg is mostly concerned with the recent aspects of agricultural science and technology and management. It upholds the responsibility of providing quality education in agriculture and allied fields through its world-class facilities and competent faculty members and staff who are committed to continuously produce the necessary mechanism that aims to promote relevant agricultural education in the country.
The program is designed to produce educated and competent agribusiness managers/entrepreneurs. The curriculum intends to develop knowledge, skills, and values in creating, managing, and growing sustainable agribusinesses. To finish the program, students must complete 158-course units including a case study write-up out of their six-unit internship conducted in an agribusiness enterprise either locally or abroad.
The program focuses either on ruminant and non-ruminant production, crop science (i.e. agronomy, horticulture, organic farming, or plant breeding), crop protection (i.e. entomology, plant pathology, or weed science), soil science, agricultural economics, and agricultural extension. The students must complete 146-course units of coursework which include an apprenticeship, undergraduate thesis, or major practice.
Graduate Degree Programs
The Doctor of Philosophy in Agricultural Entomology program aims to support the promotion of continuing intellectual growth, advancement of learning research and development of responsible and effective individuals. The program focuses on courses dealing with insects that have significant impact, both in the destructive and beneficial aspect, in crop and animal production.
The Doctor of Philosophy in Animal Science program aims to provide a way to mentor graduate students in utilizing complex research, creative work, and/or professional practice in animal science. It is a way to develop complex research and creative work with strategic value added. The capability of the graduate students to apply a significant level of expertise-based autonomy will be harnessed with the guidance of experts in the field of animal nutrition, reproductive physiology, and biotechnology, including scientists at Philippine Carabao Center (PCC), and other allied institutions.
The program aims to train project managers and entrepreneurs who will manage government programs as well as private enterprises as it inculcates among its students the role and importance of agribusiness enterprises, and rural development projects in sustaining economic growth. The main thrust of the program is to enhance the acquisition of skills in the fields of production, marketing, personnel and organizational management. Students will likewise acquire the expertise in actual development and management of agribusiness projects.
The MS in Agricultural Economics aims to provide future college teachers, economists, agriculturists, researchers and executives in government and industry with broad and adequate training in the technique and application of economic analysis. It is largely concerned with providing a framework for addressing economic issues and deeper understanding of the fundamental choices facing business and government.
The graduate degree program aims to provide advanced knowledge and skills in a specialized, interdisciplinary, or multidisciplinary field of animal science for self-directed research. It is an avenue to foster lifelong learning for self-directed research that involves working with interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary experts.
The program offers the opportunity for advanced training and professional growth of BSA graduates with major in Crop Protection. It aims to strengthen the academic foundation, and to further develop the capabilities of the candidates in various disciplines of crop protection like entomology, plant pathology, and other related areas of concern.
