If you find this interesting, then agriculture is a great degree program for you. A degree in agriculture is a combination of modern, challenging curriculum designed to provide you with critical scientific knowledge and experiential learning opportunities such as hands-on labs, field-based exercises, industry-driven internships and both undergraduate and graduate research projects. It is these practical learning experiences that will set you apart from your peers and prepare you to enter the vast world of agriculture.
