A new certificate program in Small-Scale Farming is under development. This program
will provide knowledge and hands on activities in the sustainable production of fruits
and vegetables for local markets.
Professional certificate programs offered by the Department of Plant and Soil Science are designed for non-traditional students seeking to develop additional job skills, advance their careers, or make a career change. Although these classes do not carry academic credit, the coursework can be rigorous and demanding in terms of time and content. Students are awarded continuing education units (CEU) upon completion of each course, and a Professional Certificate in the subject area when all program requirements have been fulfilled. Classes are conveniently delivered through a combination of online courses and hands-on activities in Lubbock and Fredericksburg.
