The Department of Agronomy prepares students for a wide variety of professional positions that require a combination of scientific and managerial skills.  Appealing career opportunities exist for students interested in the sciences, in natural resources, in business, or in communications.

A hallmark of the department is the personal attention given to each student.   Faculty members advise students on an individual basis and work with students throughout their college careers and beyond.  Students are encouraged to work with faculty in research labs and in industry to gain professional experience.  Agronomy majors select one of eight major areas.  Each program of study provides adequate flexibility to meet specific interest and goals.
