Program Requirements

If you are pursuing a degree in agricultural business, you must meet the below requirements to be eligible for graduation. Also, you must complete the general education program, fulfill the general baccalaureate degree requirements and complete at least 125 hours of course work.

The agricultural business program is comprehensive, so it does not require the completion of a minor.  However, supplementing your course work with other interdisciplinary courses may make you more marketable upon graduation. Please note the different course requirements for the three track options within the agricultural business degree program.
