Academic Programs


To meet the educational needs of its students, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College offers a range of degrees. Academic programs are housed in four schools: the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, and the Stafford School of Business.

Baccalaureate degrees – The College offers the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degrees. The Bachelor of Science degree (B.S.) is offered in the fields of agribusiness, agriculture, agricultural communication, agricultural education, biology, business, environmental horticulture, history and government, natural resource management, rural community development, and writing and communication. See program details in the following sections.

Students may earn a minor in discipline areas where majors are offered at the bachelor’s level if they complete the required 15 to 18 semester hours of coursework, 9 semester hours of which must be 3000- or 4000-level courses. Courses taken in Core Areas A through E may not be counted as course work in the minor.

Associate degrees – The College offers three transfer associate degrees. The Associate of Arts degree (A.A.) and the Associate of Science degree (A.S.) prepare the student for further study in many disciplines at ABAC or other colleges or universities. The College also offers the Associate of Fine Arts in Music (A.F.A.M.), in which students must follow a prescriptive course of study that allows for completion of some areas of the Core Curriculum at a college or university to which they transfer to complete a bachelor’s degree in music.

In addition, the College offers one career associate degree. Students who complete the required coursework leading to licensure as a Registered Nurse will earn the Associate of Science in Nursing (A.S.N.).
