Valuable learning experiences gained through agriculture studies are not limited to Agriculture majors. Non-agriculture majors can obtain a minor in Agriculture by completing a minimum of 25 hours of coursework. This minor is designed for students who seek a broad understanding of the nature and role of agriculture and natural resources in the integrated world economy, and of the implications of world events for agriculture and natural resources in both the United States and abroad. Our minor adds a global perspective to professional preparation.
Chances are, the organization you choose to participate in will include a diverse group of people — you’ll be faced with the same situation in the working world! Learning how different people respond and react to certain situations will help you develop your skills in presenting and implementing ideas.
Knowing how to work well with a team is an essential skill for any career. Being in a student organization teaches you how to do this by putting you in situations where you are required to take advice from others, as well as give your own. You have several opportunities to become an active member or leader of one of our agriculture organizations.
