American agriculture provides a third of the world’s food supply and will be called upon to significantly increase production by mid-century for an ever-hungrier world. As a student in Wilmington College’s largest major, you will become prepared to help meet that daunting challenge through a blending of academic theory and hands-on practical experience.

Our students do things! We emphasize the understanding of concepts through their application outside the classroom as the most effective way of learning. Our hands-on learning opportunities can take you from labs in our new Center for the Sciences & Agriculture to our greenhouses and 267-acre, crop and animal production farm. You’ll also have opportunities to learn how to lobby Congress on agricultural and rural life issues in Washington, D.C. and organize a judging competition that regularly attracts 1,000-plus high school students. You may even get the opportunity to study sustainable farming methods in tropical Costa Rica.
