 The Mt. SAC agricultural sciences program consists of coursework, laboratory work, and practical, hands-on experience in animal science, horticulture, and veterinary technician instruction. Our outstanding on-campus facilities and industry-experienced faculty give students a practical, real-world experience in a classroom setting.

Each year animal science students buy and sell farm animals, and our award-winning horticulture students grow and sell hundreds of varieties of trees, plants, and ground covers. Students also attend field trips and can intern with nearby industry in Los Angeles County, which is one of the largest dollar-volume users of horticultural products in the world.
