Since the fall of 1994, the University of Idaho and the College of Southern Idaho have worked together to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in agriculture entirely in Twin Falls! The Twin Falls major is Agricultural Science, Communication & Leadership (ASCL). This cooperative 2+2 program builds on CSI’s Associate of Arts degree in Agriculture. Its flexibility enables students to get the additional education they need to advance their current careers, to apply professional management to their current job, or to simply begin a new career in agriculture. Courses are available in agricultural education; agricultural systems management; animal and veterinary science; family and consumer science; and plant, soil and entomological science. The courses are delivered through live instruction, DVD/video, videoconferencing, and online.

- on-site facilitation and scheduling of courses
