How we develop and maintain our agricultural systems is crucial to public health, as well as to local, national, and international economies. If you want to make a difference in this important field, consider taking courses in agricultural science.  

What is a course in agricultural science, you ask? Courses in agricultural science encompass a broad multidisciplinary field of biological-based natural, economic, and social sciences that are used in the practice of agriculture. Typical courses that fall under this topic of study include animal science, basic horticulture, and soils and pesticides. Other courses that may be offered include wildlife science, ecology, and natural resources management. Landscaping also falls under the category of agricultural science courses.

Students choose to take agricultural science courses for a variety of reasons, although it is often to simply augment or round out their study of sciences. However, more advanced courses offer highly specialized training for specific functions of land-use and crop management.

Costs associated with agricultural science courses vary by the location of the institution as well as the length of the class. Additionally, some courses incorporate a field study in their curriculum, which often increases the cost of the course.

Students who take courses in agricultural science and end up getting a degree in the field of study often go on to be farmers, agricultural consultants, or land use planners. Numerous opportunities also exist to pursue international aid and development via these courses, whether it is for a for-profit entity or a nonprofit organization. Regardless of the level or amount of courses a student takes, agricultural science offers all students a window to the world of sourcing food, thereby increasing their overall perspective.

If you’re interested in taking a course in agricultural science, there are numerous opportunities to do so at institutions around the world. Because of the nature of the discipline, there are often more classes offered on the topic at schools that are located in rural areas. Online courses in agricultural sciences are also readily available, which may be a good option for working professionals or part-time students.
