Agriculture Programs Bring Students to MOC.
Agricultural production and agribusiness combine to represent the number one industry in North Carolina. Students desiring to become a part of this growing field must have an understanding of both business and agricultural sciences. The Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness curriculum equips students to obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to enter and succeed in this ever-changing and challenging industry. Graduates of the agribusiness program will be prepared to pursue careers in agriculture and agribusinesses including:
- Integrated Farming Operations

- Wholesale and Retail Ag Sales
- Food and Fiber Processing
- Operations § Agricultural Consultants
- Many others
Students interested in teaching, whether in a formal or non-formal setting, will find this opportunity fulfilled through the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education program at University of Mount Olive. This degree program offers students two concentrations of study from which to choose.
The Teacher Education Concentration grants students a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education and allows them to be recommended for teacher licensure enabling them to teach in public school systems, grades 9-12, immediately upon graduation.
The Outreach and Development Concentration Bachelor of Science program prepares students for careers in extension (4-H and horticulture), agribusinesses, governmental agencies (USDA, NCDA, NRCS, etc.), private and public commodity associations, and more.
