Program Requirements:

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources offers a two-year Associate in Science (AS) degree in Newark. This degree is ideal for students interested in agriculture who desire to spend only two years working toward a degree or who are unsure of their plans for higher education. Admission requirements for the associate degree are the same as for the baccalaureate degree.

The Associate in Science offers an extremely flexible curriculum. The student must complete a minimum of 62 credit hours, with at least 30 of the credits earned within at least four of the five departments in the college. A minimum of 32 credits for the degree must be earned at the University of Delaware. In addition, the recipient must have a minimum GPA of 2.0. A candidate must apply for the associate degree during the academic term in which all requirements for the degree are to be completed and must, at the time of application, be enrolled in the college.

Although not recommended, a student could take all 62 credits in agricultural courses. A better approach would be for the student to take some course work in the areas of physical science, social science, English, and mathematics along with their courses in agriculture. This approach would allow the student to more easily complete a BS degree program at a later date.
