Farm and Industry Short Course is an educational program in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at UW-Madison designed to prepare students for careers in agriculture. Class sessions begin in mid-November and end in late March. The program’s instructional goals emphasize a combination of cutting edge knowledge and hands-on experience, taught by faculty and staff, many of whom also teach in the four-year undergraduate program. Over 55 courses are offered annually in the areas of soils, crops, dairy, meat animals, general livestock, agricultural engineering and agricultural economics. Students may earn a one-year or two-year certificate requiring 20 or 40 credits, respectively. They may also pursue a specialty certificate in one of six areas: Crop and Soil Management, Dairy Farm Management, Farm Mechanics, Farm Service and Supply, Meat Animals, or Pasture-Based Dairy and Livestock. Up to 15 credits can be transferred to the College’s four-year program.
