Find Your Own Path:

Our undergraduate degree in Agricultural Sciences is offered on the Corvallis Campus, Extended Campus, and Eastern Oregon University in LaGrande.

The Agricultural Sciences major gives you the freedom to design your own degree. As part of the degree program, students can choose from various agricultural-based credits and electives. You can go broad with exposure to all areas of agriculture, go deep with two or more emphasis areas — or do a combination of both. You can focus on topics like animal sciences, crop and soil science or agricultural business management. Other focus areas can strengthen your leadership and communication skills. And if you’re interested in becoming a teacher, an Agricultural Sciences degree is an ideal first step. It allows you to integrate the breadth of agricultural based prerequisite courses required for the Masters of Agricultural Education graduate/licensure program.

With a degree in Agricultural Sciences, you can get a wide-ranging education that covers agriculture production, agribusiness, resource management, and environmental/sustainability issues.

Online Path Gives You Additional Options:

Want even more flexibility? You can complete an Agricultural Sciences degree online through Ecampus, OSU’s accredited distance learning program. If you’re already working on a farm or ranch, the online degree is a great way to complete your education. Even if you’re a student on campus, you can take Agricultural Sciences classes online for increased flexibility in course scheduling. See Ecampus’ Schedule of Classes for lists per term of the variety of classes offered online.

Options: 

The Agricultural Education & Agricultural Sciences major is an integrated major, allowing students to select courses from across all departments in the College of Agriculture.  Students may pursue an Agricultural Education track, or design their own theme-based curriculum using their major electives.

The Comparative International Agriculture minor pairs well with this major. Students study, intern abroad, or focus on international aspects of agriculture.

The Leadership minor also prepares students for community based agricultural pursuits, responsible and sustainable contributions in the field of Agriculture.

Agricultural Education & Agricultural Sciences majors cannot also minor in Agricultural Sciences, but students from any other OSU major may do so.
