About the Major

The Agricultural Sciences interdisciplinary undergraduate major is for students wishing to pursue a general education in agriculture to prepare for careers that require a scientific and integrated understanding of agriculture and food systems. Students learn about agricultural sustainability from multiple perspectives by taking a wide breadth of core coursework, complemented by a concentration in  one of the following areas of study:

  • Animal Science
  • Business Management and Policy
  • Education and Society
  • Organic Agriculture
  • Sustainable Cropping Systems Management

This structure allows students to respond quickly to the fast-paced changes occurring in agriculture today.

Experiential and hands-on learning are foundations of the program. All students are required to complete an internship for credit under the supervision of qualified professionals and faculty.
