Faith. Family. Farming.
As one of only a handful of evangelical universities in the United States to offer a four-year agriculture program, Huntington University recognizes the unique relationship between opportunities in agriculture and the call to Christian stewardship.
At Huntington University, you’ll find the intersection of faith, family, and farming and prepare for a future to equip you in:
- enabling you to work the land
- innovating techniques and technology
- educating the public
- building a family legacy
- pursuing a global ministry opportunity
- uniting communities
You might be a future Ag professional if…
With a passion to steward God’s creation and a heart that breaks for the hungry, you’ll learn what it takes to feed the world one seed at a time.
At HU, we often encourage students to discover what breaks their heart, and equip them with the tools to repair it. Studying agriculture is no different. From planting to harvest, faith is integral to agriculture, and a Christian perspective is ingrained in the program as you study proper stewardship and care of the land.

“I feel ready to learn. I know that I am not going to know everything going into a new job, but I feel equipped to learn how to do the job the right way it needs to be done.
“Huntington University has everything any other program offers. What’s different is the attention you’ll get when you join the program. We can engage everyone and offer opportunities to everyone. At HU, attention from the professors and other classmates comes standard.”
“Agriculture is an expanding area with countless opportunities, both traditional and cutting-edge. Our graduates have gone on to work for both international and local agriculture companies as well as begin graduate school.”
To truly see the intersection of faith, family, and farming, you need to experience what you are studying in an up-close and personal way. That’s why practical learning is built into our curriculum.
With amazing indoor and outdoor facilities, including the 2,000-square-foot Ware Plant Science Production Facility, the Don Strauss Animal Science Education Center, Forester Farms, and over 250+ acres of land to explore at the Thornhill Nature Preserve, state-of-the-art equipment is the standard. Your courses will be packed with experiential learning to equip you for your future career.
Your ag experience will not be limited to a classroom. As a result of our University’s size and dedication to excellence, you will gain direct access to learning spaces that will literally get you out in the field. From outdoor learning labs to dedicated plant science and animal science spaces on campus, our coursework will enhance your ability to excel in your field of study while stewarding God’s creation.
Internships and practical experiences are built into the heart of agriculture at HU. All students complete at least one internship experience, with most completing several. Our students have worked all over the country based on their interests — at farms, ranches, banks, and even overseas. Plenty of on-campus assets provide opportunities for research and interaction with the tools and products of the agriculture trade.
Established in 2013, the Agriculture Advisory Council consists of members from the ag industry and from Huntington University. With a commitment to excellence, real-world experience, and equipping students with the tools of the trade, HU’s own faculty and staff serve as members on the council. You can trust that the education you’re receiving is not only grounded in faith, but rooted in a deep understanding of current ag industry needs.
Huntington University’s plan to start an agriculture program resonated with the couple whose involvement in farming has spanned 52 years. Their family farm began as a 40-acre operation and has grown into 2,800 acres. Dale also grew up on a farm. Despite the Hauperts’ passion, support, and involvement in HU’s Institute for Agricultural Studies, they were still surprised when they learned the institute would be named after them.
