We offer high quality courses. Our graduates and students give high marks for the quality of our courses.Instructional designers specialized in distance education assist our faculty to develop high quality courses of instruction. We use a range of delivery methods including lecture recordings, video, simulations, online assignments and quizzes in order to enhance learning.
We offer the greatest diversity of courses and the most flexibility. We offer a wide variety of courses in soil and crop sciences, plant pathology, entomology, weed science, turfgrass management, statistics, hydrology, etc. Other programs offer a fixed set of courses, or a narrow range of courses in a single field of study. At AU, you can tailor your program to meet your specific needs and career goals.
