Learn About Crops, Animals and Everything in Between
The general agriculture (GNA) degree offers students the opportunity to get 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 the GNA degree offers her the ability to do so. Additionally, many of our students who choose to double (or triple or quadruple!) major choose GNA as one of their degrees because it is so inclusive. The GNA degree 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 areas of concentration allow students to get the broad spectrum of courses that the GNA degree offers, and also to focus on one area a little more closely. The GNA program also allows for students who come to the Agricultural Institute unsure of their specialty areas a chance to learn about our diverse fields taught here.
