Agricultural Business

Graduates from our program are trained to work in the ever changing world economy and acquire enhanced marketability for a wide range of careers. Our curriculum provides a common body of knowledge for students in Agricultural Economics and Business Administration while combining core courses from Agricultural and Applied Economics with business courses in Accounting, Marketing, Management, Finance, and Business Law to provide a strong foundation for careers in management of agricultural businesses. 

Agricultural Studies

The Agricultural Studies program offers three emphases: Agricultural Education, Agricultural Science and Agricultural Systems Technology. Students can choose their emphasis based on their own personal career goals.  

Animal Science

Animal Science involves study of the science and business of producing domestic livestock, such as beef and dairy cattle, swine, poultry, sheep and goats. An animal scientist applies principles of the biological, physical, and social sciences to the problems associated with livestock production, management, and welfare. Animal Science is also concerned with human food (meat, milk, eggs, etc.) produced from domesticated livestock species. In addition, Animal Science includes aspects of companion animals (horses, dogs, cats, etc.), including their nutrition, care, and welfare.

Plant and Soil Science

The Plant and Soil Science area has a tradition of research and education in crop production, horticulture, soil management and precision agriculture technologies. We have an outstanding faculty who are developing management strategies for crop production, environmental protections, horticultural production, landscape management and maintenance, as well as preparing the future generation of land managers and agricultural professionals.
