Michigan State University’s Institute of Agricultural Technology (IAT) and Lake Michigan College have teamed up to offer MSU Certificate Programs in Applied Plant Science and Viticulture with the option to also earn an LMC associate’s degree.
MSU’s IAT offers many two-year certificate programs on campus in East Lansing, and now off campus at Lake Michigan College. Similar IAT programs off campus in both the Grand Rapids and Traverse City areas allow LMC students to connect with students in other parts of the state during classes using Interactive Television technology. All MSU courses in these programs are available at the LMC Napier Avenue Campus at MSU tuition rates. Students in the MSU programs must be enrolled in both MSU and LMC and complete all courses from both schools to earn a certificate from MSU and an Associate’s degree from LMC.
Students may either major in Viticulture or choose a concentration from the Applied Plant Science program in:
- Commercial Horticulture Operations
- Landscape Horticulture
