SUMMARY

Choosing to study Agricultural Public Services is not only a valuable choice, but commonly a required first step for undergraduates planning to enter a career as an agriculture manager, a conservation scientist and farmer, or an agricultural inspector. Interestingly, agricultural public services is a very rare major coming in at the 256th most popular major. In the last year, there were 604 agricultural public services diplomas received. In-state tuition at public universities is, on average, Infinity times more spendy than their private rivals.

With only 31 universities offering agricultural public services you may have limited options as to the institutions that will have an option for you. If you are looking to surround yourself with other agricultural public services undergraduates, look at universities in Texas which have the most undergrads admitted to agricultural public services annually. Zooming out, the best region to pursue agricultural public services is in the Southwest region with Oklahoma State University-Main Campus, Texas A & M University-College Station, and Texas Tech University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to study agricultural public services is the Southeastern Conference with University of Arkansas, University of Kentucky, and Texas A & M University-College Station representing the conference. From our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our choice for the best school for agricultural public services is University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The best school is not necessarily the 'best' school for every student. There can be many more perspectives to weigh when deciding on ​university. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely impact one's inclinations on where to go to university. Here at authority.org, we have weighed the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you want to know which agricultural public services college boasts the top campus, the answer is Pennsylvania State University-Main Campus. If you are very interested in which university boasts the finest campus, then we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life here and, from that list, our choice for the school with the best student life for agricultural public services is University of Wisconsin-Madison. Curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top selections. Some of our conclusions will probably surprise you.

If expense is a primary deciding factor in your choice of where you attend university, you might be cautious about University of Wisconsin-Madison. University of Wisconsin-Madison is the most expensive school for agricultural public services, at least for out of state students. We do have an entire page for the most expensive universities that could put the cost at University of Wisconsin-Madison into perspective. Additionally, you may care to know that agricultural public services is the 294th most expensive program in the US, with an average expense of $24,700. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for agricultural public services on our list is Wisconsin with tuition and fees at the main school, University of Wisconsin-Madison, of $36,333. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for agricultural public services is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for agricultural public services is the Far West region which is represented by California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo with a cost of $17,622. More optimistically, the most affordable university for agricultural public services is West Texas A & M University. Authority's entire list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay about $10,600 for a degree in agricultural public services. The price decreases dramatically to an average of $26,100 for the out-of-state public-school undergraduate. On that note, our selection for the college with the best value for agricultural public services: Texas A & M University-College Station. On this page you will find our comprehensive list on the colleges we see as being the best value in general. That being said, this list is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for agricultural public services students can vary, but two years after completing the major students will regularly make around $60,700. There can be a lot of variation in salary; highest paid earners can rake in up to $124,400. Right out of college, the lowest end jobs within the agricultural public services field make $29,900, which isn't that bad. The highest earning grads from agricultural public services come from California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The all-around diversity of agricultural public services stands pretty bad, arriving within only the 12th percentile of all majors. The school with the most composite diversity for agricultural public services is University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and here you can find our general list for the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of Agricultural Public Services only is within the 50th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 10th percentile. White undergraduates compose the largest proportion, 79%, of those majoring in agricultural public services. Additionally, 73% of scholars pursuing an agricultural public services major are women.

The median score of agricultural public services' professors is 3.85 stars, a score that is 4% lower than the average score across all majors; which is a subpar ranking. If you are searching for the most popular agricultural public services instructor in the nation, take a look at Ian Bolling from Tidewater Community College. It may come as a surprise, but the top rated agricultural public services instructors from student rankings come from Abilene Christian University. If we including data beyond simply rankings we find that the school possessing comprehensively the best professors for agricultural public services is Purdue University-Main Campus. You can find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as some of the top instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for agricultural public services is California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we have a comprehensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you understand that considering academics from examples mainly built on superlatives can create problems. We hope you look at some of our more focused pages on individual schools and explore a couple of our helpful background articles on important things to look for as your school search continues.
