Feed the world? Power the planet? Save the environment?
WE HAVE A MAJOR FOR THAT
Science and technology... economics... growing and producing food... biotechnology... plant and soil science... organic agriculture... creating and improving the landscapes that we live in... biofuels and sustainability... medical or veterinary school...
If your interests lie at the intersections of science and agriculture, the WSU College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences has a major for you.
LEARN FROM THE BEST
WSU is a world leader in agricultural research, ranking in the top 10 for research productivity in nearly every agriculture-related discipline. No matter what area of agriculture you're interested in, you'll be learning from professors who really are national and world leaders in their fields.
Faculty researchers in agriculture and related areas at WSU are among the most productive and influential in the nation, according to statistics released by the Chronicle of Higher Education.
The University ranks among the nation's top 10 in:
- Agronomy/crop sciences: 7th
- Animal sciences: 4th
- Food sciences: 6th
- Horticulture: 8th
- Plant sciences: 2nd
- Veterinary medicine: 3rd
The Scholarly Productivity Index compares 375 different institutions based on books published, journal publications, how often journal articles are cited by other researchers, federal grant dollars awarded, and prestigious honors and awards.
THE BUSINESS AND SCIENCE OF FEEDING THE WORLD
By 2035, the world population will grow to more than 8 billion. To feed the growing population, agricultural science will need to cross new frontiers in sustainability and productivity. At WSU, exciting and critical careers focus on vital aspects of agricultural food systems, ranging from plant and animal production to marketing and education.
YOUR PATH IS ONE OF DISCOVERY
WSU’s agricultural science programs are rich with hands-on possibilities. You can take part in undergraduate research with a professor as your guide; work part-time with research staff; practice your skills in the WSU dairy or the on-campus orchard and organic farm; and participate in professional internships that put classroom training to work.
