What is Agriculture Emphasis: General Transfer Major, A.S. (TTP)?

This curriculum is designed for students wanting to prepare for transfer to a university level Agriculture program in Animal Science or Plant and Soil Science.

What will I learn?

All students who complete a degree designated as a Tennessee Transfer Pathway will be able to do the following:

  1. Communicate effectively through oral and written modes, using conventions appropriate to their audience and purpose, including critical listening, reading, and research skills.
  2. Evaluate the significance of humanity’s cultural heritage and diversity and its development in a historical and/or global context through critical and analytical methodologies.
  3. Connect knowledge of social and cultural institutions to issues of personal or public   importance.
  4. Analyze historical and contemporary issues by drawing on historical contexts.
  5. Demonstrate a broad understanding of scientific principles and concepts.
  6. Apply relevant mathematical modeling to a variety of applied or theoretical problems.

What can I do with this degree?

This degree will offer the opportunity for you to transfer to a Bachelor’s degree program in Agriculture.  Programs of this nature encompass a variety of global aspects from the basics of care for plants, animals and ecosystems to the socioeconomic aspects of world hunger and relief.


Agricultural and Food Science Technicians work in food, fiber and animal research, production and processing.  Use science to test methods to improve crop yield, quality,

pest/disease resistance and research and develop production technology, quality control, packaging, processing and use of foods.


Soil and water conservationists implement soil or water management techniques and to advise land users, such as farmers, on plans and conservation solutions.
