Vs. National Avg.
Agriculture is the 139th most popular degree in America, with 2,377 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #140 Linguistics, and narrowly lost to #138 Health Care Facilities Administration.
The degree is offered at a total of 80 colleges across the nation, and is the 200th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 2% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that 94% of colleges offering agriculture are public making it a very accessible field.
The southeast produces the most agriculture graduates, largely led by Western Kentucky University, while it’s the Ohio Valley Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Texas ranks highest, with particular help from Tarleton State University and Texas A & M University-College Station.
All that being said, no individual school produces more agriculture graduates than Arizona Western College, which graduated 221 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study agriculture). More students studied agriculture as a percentage of total students at The University of Tennessee-Martin than any other college.
