How to Select an Agriculture School
The best schools for agriculture separate the subject into its own school separate from the rest of the university. This assures choice of specializations within agriculture, as well as a variety of professors from which to learn. Specializations should include agronomy, horticulture, agriscience technology, agriculture education, agribusiness economics and animal sciences, like equine science and veterinary technology.
- Programs should offer a variety of classes, including animal/plant science, agricultural computer software, animal anatomy, agriculture safety, public policy and research.
- Look for a school with agriculture-based student organizations, clubs, or leadership opportunities.
- Quality schools feature state-of-the-art facilities with a computer lab, animal health facility, a farm center and a rodeo barn.
