Academic Programs in Agriculture

The Department of Agriculture has academic programs that prepare graduates to pursue multiple interests and careers. Our programs combine classroom work, faculty mentorship and real-world agriculture and business experience.

The Department of Agriculture offers two undergraduate degrees, the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Business and the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. The Agriculture major is further split into 4 specialized areas of study that students may choose from. A minor in Agriculture is also offered, requiring a minimum of 20 credit hours and a 12 credit hour certificate program of study in Agricultural Business is also available for those pursing other majors.

Our online program is designed to allow individuals who possess the 2-year community college degree to obtain a 4-year Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business, while studying at home, through our virtual college. Individuals who hold an Associate’s degrees from Western Kansas community colleges have access to scholarship funds, designated through the University’s AccessUs initiative, to encourage participation in this specific distance education program.
