SUMMARY

Choosing to study Agronomy and Crop Science is not only a valuable choice, but often a needed first step for undergrads choosing to pursue a career as a nursery manager, an aquaculture manager, or a crop farmer and manager. In fact, agronomy and crop science is a very rare major ranking as the 247th most popular major. Last academic year, there were 709 agronomy and crop science diplomas received. In-state tuition for agronomy and crop science at private colleges is, on average, 4 times more pricey than their public fellows.

With only 36 institutions offering agronomy and crop science you could have a smaller selection of institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are looking to surround yourself with other agronomy and crop science undergrads, consider looking at institutions in Iowa which have the most students admitted to agronomy and crop science annually. More generally, the top region to pursue agronomy and crop science is in the Plains region with Iowa State University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and South Dakota State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to major in agronomy and crop science is the Big Twelve Conference with Iowa State University representing the conference. Based on our comprehensive list on the best colleges, our selection for the best college for agronomy and crop science is University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The objectively 'best' school might not actually be the 'best' school for you. There are lots of angels to consider when deciding on school. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would sway your feelings on which school to attend. At authority.org, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which agronomy and crop science university is home to the best college campus, the answer is University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. If, for example, you are very interested in which school boasts the top campus, then we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, student reviews, professor reviews, and more so we can compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our selection of the college with the best student life for agronomy and crop science is University of Wisconsin-Madison. Curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about Authority's top selections. Many of our picks just might shock you.

If expense is a major influence in your choice of where you attend university, you might be cautious about University of Vermont. University of Vermont is our most expensive university for agronomy and crop science, at least regarding out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive colleges that could put the cost of University of Vermont into perspective. For more context, you might want to know that agronomy and crop science is the 298th most expensive degree in America, with an average bill of $24,000. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for agronomy and crop science on our list is Vermont demonstrated with a cost of $41,280 at the main college in the state University of Vermont. To zoom out even further, the most costly region for agronomy and crop science is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for agronomy and crop science is the Southwest region which is represented by Oklahoma Panhandle State University with a cost of $4,440, Texas A & M University-College Station with a cost of $34,190, and West Texas A & M University with a cost of $6,960. In better news, the most affordable university for agronomy and crop science is Oklahoma Panhandle State University. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay around $10,100 for a degree in agronomy and crop science. The cost increases intensely to an average of $23,600 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the university representing the best value for agronomy and crop science: Texas A & M University-College Station. Through this link you will see our comprehensive list about the colleges we see as being the best value in general. With that said, this idea is based on out-of-state tuition costs. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for agronomy and crop science majors vary a lot, but two years after leaving college graduates will regularly make in the neighborhood of $41,900. There can be much variation in salary; highest paid earners can make up to $83,800. Right out of college, the lowest end jobs within the agronomy and crop science space earn $21,000, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates for agronomy and crop science 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 agronomy and crop science is subpar, falling within only the 13th percentile of majors nationally. The college with the highest composite diversity for agronomy and crop science is Oklahoma Panhandle State University and here you can find our general list of the schools with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Agronomy and Crop Science only is within the 62nd percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is even further below average in the 9th percentile. White collegians make up the largest share, 79%, of scholars studying agronomy and crop science. Additionally, 68% of undergraduates pursuing an agronomy and crop science major are men.

The median ranking of agronomy and crop science professors is 3.7 stars, a rating that is 7% less than the median across all majors; which is a subpar score. If you are interested in the most popular agronomy and crop science instructor in the nation, look no further than Jianping Wang at University of Florida. This may be a shock, but the top rated professors for agronomy and crop science by student are at Iowa State University. If we consider data beyond just rankings we find that the university possessing the overall best professors for agronomy and crop science is Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. One will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the top examples of instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest college to get into for agronomy and crop science is California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you understand that looking at the education process through a lens only shaped by superlatives can create issues. We encourage you to look at some of our more nuanced pages on individual schools and peruse a couple of our background pages on beneficial details to look for as your school search continues.
