Agriculture & Natural Resources (AAS, CA, CO)

The Agriculture & Natural Resources program provides instruction for those in need of training, retraining, or skills upgrading in the field of agriculture, and those wishing to transfer to a four-year college or university. Diverse learning activities are provided at facilities on Maui and Molokai. The Maui facility includes a 10,700 sq. ft. greenhouse and 1.5 acres of vegetable fields and landscapes. The Molokai Farm includes a 5,000 sq. ft. greenhouse, orchards, and vegetable fields on 28 acres of land.

Projections point to a continued need for well-trained people in all aspects of the green industry. Hotels and condominiums face increasing demand for personnel to design and maintain aesthetically pleasing landscapes in an environmentally sound manner. Farms and agriculturally related businesses need informed individuals to implement new technologies and sustainable agriculture techniques. Numerous opportunities exist for entrepreneurs in vegetable, flower, and nursery crop production as well as landscape maintenance. The New Farmer Institute at UHMC is devoted to assisting outstanding students and graduates with becoming agriprenuers.

Students may transfer to other institutions after beginning their academic and technical training on Maui or Molokai. Some agriculture courses are articulated or can be used as electives at the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo or University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. The eCampus of Oregon State University offers a degree in general agriculture that allows UHMC agriculture students the opportunity to pursue a bachelor’s degree while living here in Maui County.
