Ag Careers

Graduates from the College of Ag Sciences are in high demand.

There are almost twice as many agriculture-related jobs in the U.S. as there are people with degrees in the agricultural sciences to fill them, says a recent Department of Agriculture report. There’s high demand in food, agriculture, and renewable natural resources with job titles like animal nutritionist, regulatory inspector, pharmaceutical researcher, quality assurance technician, ecosystem manager, crop adviser, pest control specialist, food scientist, sustainable biomaterials specialist, water resources scientist and engineer, precision agriculture specialist, and veterinarian—to name a few!
