UW Farm and Industry Short Course holds Preview Day on April 11

March 17, 2014 | 0 comments

MADISON

The University of Wisconsin-Madison's Farm and Industry Short Course invites high school students and their parents to a Preview Day on campus on April 11. Prospective students will have a chance to talk to short course staff and students, tour the Short Course dorms, and learn about scholarship opportunities and the types of careers that a Short Course can lead to.

The one-or two-year UW short course program is designed for high school graduates interested in farming or one of Wisconsin's many other agricultural industries. It runs from November to mid-March and has an average enrollment of 135 students.

A Short Course education provides cutting-edge knowledge and hands-on experience taught by UW faculty and staff — many of who also teach in the four-year undergraduate program in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS).

Over 50 courses are offered annually in the areas of soils, crops, dairy, meat animals, general livestock, agricultural engineering and agricultural economics.

Students may earn a one-year or two-year certificate requiring 20 or 40 credits, respectively. Or they can pursue a specialty certificate in one of six areas: crop and soil management, dairy farm management, farm mechanics, farm service and supply, meat animals, or pasture-based dairy and livestock. Up to 15 credits can be transferred to the CALS four-year degree program.

There is no cost for the Preview Day but space is limited and registration is required. Registration is accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis until April 7. To register go online to fisc.cals.wis.edu and select "prospective students."
