ABOUT

The College of Agriculture emphasizes academic preparation with extensive community practice for leadership in rural Philippines. Courses are geared to understanding our society and to developing skills needed for making agricultural communities productive and financially viable. Silliman University College of Agriculture is an ACAP (Association of Colleges of Agriculture in the Philippines) charter member.
The College offers degree programs in Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (majors in Animal Science and Agronomy), Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business and Master in Applied Science (M.App.Sci.) in Systems Agriculture. The Bachelor of Science programs are PAASCU accredited (level II).
Through a 10-year development program under the sponsorship of the International Development Program that ended in June 1994, a new thrust in learning and teaching agriculture was developed. The initial step was sending all the members of the faculty for either Special Study Program, Masteral or Ph.D. studies in Australia. The Alternative Approach, a new curricular approach that emphasizes experiential learning and systems thinking and practice is now being implemented at Silliman University College of Agriculture.
The College of Agriculture utilizes an alternative approach to teaching and learning agriculture which emphasizes competency and issue-based learning.
The competencies expected of a problem solver, and systems manager. It is envisioned that graduates with such competencies can cope with real world prob Federal Republic of Germany with a grant of $90,000.
