Agricultural Science Major

This major enables students to develop programs of study to serve their individual needs by assembling courses selected from various departments within the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Think about majoring in Agricultural Science if:

  • You want to combine a broad agricultural background with an area of interest not available in one of the specialized majors.
  • You want to become part of an industry that's a world leader in providing food and fiber to millions of people.
  • You want to prepare for careers in agribusiness or production agriculture.
  • You want to prepare for graduate or professional schools.

The student develops either a broad background in agriculture or a special program of study not currently offered within departments of the college. Students are expected to focus study on one or more disciplines of the agricultural sciences by selecting a minor from the approved list of minors offered by the College of Agricultural Sciences. The student, in consultation with an adviser, is given considerable flexibility for selecting courses to satisfy individual interests and aspirations.

NOTE:  The Agricultural Science major requires a minor.
