Aszhia’s Answer

Hey there! So I work in agronomy and went to school for Agricultural Science. Others could be: agronomy, horticulture, applied plant sciences. I even know people who work in agronomy and have an ag communications, ag business, ag technology degree or even a science-based degree such as biology, chemistry, or microbiology. There are many options. What was really important to me was getting into agronomy summer internships as well!

Tia’s Answer

Many colleges in the Midwest have Agronomy/ Plant and Soil Sciences. I know Ohio State, Oklahoma State, and Iowa State all have programs. These colleges have a website where you can learn more and typically you can setup time with an admissions counselor to learn more.

Riley recommends the following next steps:

Find a school that offers agricultural science as a major.
