Agricultural Studies Program
Faith. Family. Farming.
The Agricultural Studies Program at Huntington University promotes a Christian perspective on agriculture, which recognizes our responsibility to be good stewards of God's creation and to examine questions of productivity and sustainability.
Majors within the Department of Agricultural Studies include agribusiness, agricultural education and launching in the fall of 2020 - animal science and crop science/agronomy.
The agribusiness program is intended to meet the growing need for agribusiness professionals and includes concentrations in agrimanagement, agrimarketing, agrieconomics and finance, agrientrepreneurial small business management, crop production, animal production, communication and public policy, ministry and missions, and agricultural education.

Huntington University is one of the very few higher education institutions in Indiana that offer four-year degrees in agriculture.
Although there are more than 150 high schools in Indiana offering agriculture, there is a shortage of agricultural instructors in the state and nationwide. As such, HU is uniquely positioned to train future agriculture teachers from a faith-based perspective in a small-college environment.
