Gain Practical Experience
As an agricultural science major at Truman, you have more opportunity to get hands-on training than you typically find at larger institutions. If horses are your passion, learn about breeding, reproduction, horsemanship, and more. Or work directly with vegetable production and marketing through our Farm to School Program. You can also learn about plants, crops, and soil, as well as livestock management.
Unique Learning Environment
Located about a mile from campus, the 400-acre University Farm features a classroom/lab, two greenhouses, an orchard, vineyards, research and garden plots, as well as cattle and horse herds and indoor and outdoor riding arenas. You also have access to labs and equipment in Magruder Hall, the University’s science facilities.
