Overview

In the Agriculture - Individualized Curriculum program at the University of Kentucky, you can choose from the IP - Entomology, IP - Modern Agronomic Crop Production and IP - Sustainable Agriculture tracks.

IP - Entomology

The curriculum of this program offers both a strong, diverse core of entomological courses and the flexibility to make each student's experience unique through individualized research experiences, and selection of specialized coursework from other disciplines (agriculture sciences, biology, and chemisty). 

Because of the small size of this program, students will have many opportunities to develop one-on-one interactions with faculty and graduate students.  All students conduct independent research under a faculty mentor.  Most students have part-time employment opportunities in laboratories that allow their entomological skills to grow.

  • Conservation Biologist
  • Extension Agent or Specialise

IP - Modern Agronomic Crop Production

Agronomists impact lives every day.  They produce and use plants for food, fiber, forage, fuel, and to enhance the human environment.  They promote conservation of our soil and water resources and all related services.  

Choosing to study agronomy is more than farming.  Whether you are interested in agriculture, pure science or even business, agronomy offers you the opportunity to pursue a career that will impact the planet.
