Agriculture is a dynamic, diversified field with a great need for graduates trained in the liberal arts as well as the scientific and practical components of agricultural production. Students benefit from the Agriculture Department's strong academic program which is coupled with available experiences in on-campus farm production, farm management, and industry internships. The department has excellent facilities in both the academic program and the work education area. It is an exciting time to be a part of this unique program!

At the College of the Ozarks' agriculture school, students participate in our work college program. Students earning an agriculture degree have the opportunity to get real-world experience at the college's operating farm.
