In the Applied Agricultural and Food Studies Department at Morningside University, you will find everything you’re looking for and characteristics unique that impress from start to finish. Personalized educational experience with 11:1 student to faculty ratio in the department, a newly constructed $2 million Ag Center and Greenhouse facilities, a beautiful campus with a cohesive, family-like atmosphere, and a new Ag Education degree program successfully turning out a new crop of innovative and exciting teachers.

Our program’s curriculum for the Agricultural and Food Studies degree program is built around the Externship, a seven-month work experience that students complete following their junior year. Students participate in this paid, semester-long Externship in Sioux City, greater Iowa and beyond and work side-by-side with management and production teams doing real agriculture in the real world.

In addition to our ag-related majors, Applied Agricultural and Food Studies and Agricultural Education, we have minors in Agribusiness, Agricultural Communications, Agricultural Studies, Agronomy, Environmental Policy/Law, and Food Safety.
