Learn About Crops, Animals and Everything in Between
The general agriculture (GNA) degree offers students the opportunity to earn a degree in agriculture without having to focus on one specific area, such as horticulture or animal science. With this degree, you’ll be prepared for a job in any area of agriculture.
I wanted to learn about both the crops and animals.
As one GNA student, Krystal Godwin, put it, “I wanted to learn about both the crops and animals,” and this degree offers her the ability to do so. Additionally, many of our students who choose to double (or triple or quadruple) major choose GNA because it is so inclusive. The program also offers the opportunity to concentrate on specific topics. Our GNA students can choose from agribusiness management, field crop production, general livestock management, poultry management, and swine management. These concentrations allow students to take a spectrum of courses while also focusing on one area closely.
