NEW Agricultural Communications Bachelor's at SUNY Cobleskill

"We are excited to announce our new Agricultural Communications B.S. program at SUNY Cobleskill, which was approved last spring.  


As the Interim Dean of Academic Affairs and Teaching Faculty, I just wanted to personally reach out to you to let you know that I am here if you have any questions or need anything. I am really proud of our newest program – and even had a hand in creating it. I can confidently say that our faculty experts, our “learning by doing” approach, and our skills-based and comprehensive curriculum will prepare you well for your career.      


You may not know that our Ag Comm bachelor’s program is the only one in the Northeastern U.S. You also get to study at a premier college of agriculture and technology that resides on a 900-acre campus that includes:  


  • An on-campus farm with new equestrian center and 200-cow dairy facility

  • The Northeast’s largest cold-water fish hatchery

  • Specialized classrooms and laboratories

  • Student-run restaurant and cafe/food retailer 

  • USDA-approved meat laboratory

  • Dairy-processing facility 

  • Design Center and art gallery

  • A student-run television studio 

  • 10 residence halls


What do you need from me? I am happy to have a conversation with you to tell you more about our campus and program. We can also take you on a personalized tour of campus, wherein you visit the facilities and areas related to your major. I can also introduce you to the interdisciplinary group of faculty that serve our Ag Comm program (in Agribusiness, Communication, Business Administration, Animal Science, and Graphic Design).    


Here’s a link that tells more about courses you will take and careers you can embark upon with this highly marketable and flexible degree that prepares you for so many types of opportunities.


All of my contact information is below. Feel free to reach out!"
