PCC offers an agriculture program that has the great advantage of being located in South Central Kansas, one of the world's most productive agricultural regions. Students are able to work first hand with livestock and in production situations instead of just learning skills and theories in a classroom.Through a variety of partnerships with area industry, students have opportunities to experience the learning on a daily basis.This focus on hands-on training is apparent in the classroom.
The mission of the Agriculture Program at Pratt Community College is to emphasize student learning while preparing students with the requisite agricultural knowledge base and practical skills to transfer to a four-year college or university, or to successfully enter their chosen agricultural career.
Some course examples are: range management, livestock production, meats, marketing ag products and welding as well as traditional ag classes of soils, plant science, animal science and ag economics. The small class size ensures that students get the attention they deserve.
