The Agricultural Sciences major gives you the freedom to design your own degree. With your choice of credits and electives, you can go broad with exposure to all areas of agriculture, go deep with two or more emphasis areas — or do a combination of both. You can focus on topics like animal sciences, crop and soil science or agricultural business management. Other focus areas can strengthen your leadership and communication skills. And if you’re interested in becoming a teacher, an Agricultural Sciences degree is an ideal first step.
With a degree in Agricultural Sciences, you can get a wide-ranging education that covers agriculture production, agribusiness and environmental issues.
Online Path Gives You Additional Options
Want even more flexibility? You can complete an Agricultural Sciences degree entirely online through Ecampus, OSU’s accredited distance learning program. If you’re already working on a farm or ranch, the online degree is a great way to complete your education. Even if you’re a student on campus, you can take Agricultural Sciences classes online whenever that option works better with your schedule.
