About the Agricultural Science Department

School of Science and Mathematics: Agricultural Science Department

The Agricultural Science Department at Truman affords the opportunity for students to experience a holistic approach to the study of food and fiber production and their association and interaction with societal concerns. At Truman, our focus is on a sustainable agricultural system.

Agricultural Science Academic Programs

In addition to taking the core set of agriculture courses required of all Agricultural Science majors, each student must also choose at least 15 hours of courses to include in their Area of Specialization. The chosen courses are designed to prepare each student for a specific career within Agriculture.

Consortium of Five Agriculture Universities

Truman State University participates in a consortium with four other Missouri schools to expand the electives available to students at each institution by sharing agriculture courses online. The Consortium of Five Universities was developed to enhance food security through education. Shared resources between Truman State University, Missouri State University, University of Central Missouri, Northwest Missouri State University, and Southeast Missouri State University extend the capacity of the five universities and regional community colleges.
