College of Agriculture

Graduates Ready for Career Advancement

Over the past 100 years, A-State has evolved from a regional school of agricultural instruction to a comprehensive university. The College of Agriculture has also evolved throughout the years. While education is still our primary mission, we also have extensive public outreach programming and research activities.

We prepare our graduates for entry and career advancement in the food, fiber, and natural resources industry, which involves production (farming), agribusiness and value-added processing, public service and rural leadership; and for entry and advancement in the manufacturing and industrial technology industries.

We offer both undergraduate and master’s degrees within the college, and we participate in doctoral education through the interdisciplinary Environmental Sciences and Molecular Biosciences programs.
