Agriculture involves everything from science to business, communications to education, and biotechnology to food science. As new technologies and job opportunities emerge, agriculture will continue to change. Agriculture students study science, mathematics, computer science, economics, accounting, finance, marketing, social science and communications, in addition to agriculture.

Opportunities exist in business and industry, communications, conservation, education, international agriculture, research, production and services. Agriculture students also compete for jobs outside the traditional agriculture industry. Demand for agriculture graduates is expected to remain strong. 

One in five people in the United States is employed in an agriculture-related job, but a shortage in the number of university graduates with agriculture expertise continues to exist. 

Academics

 Selecting a major in agriculture is an important decision. Advisors will help identify the program that is most compatible with your career goals and interests, and you can combine course work from several majors.

Leadership, communication and interpersonal skills are essential for today’s graduate. K-State offers many opportunities to become involved on campus through departmental clubs, service organizations, student government and much more. 

Each activity contributes to greater personal and professional development. Hands-on experience is encouraged through internships, work programs, special projects and international travel.
