Agriculture

The Agriculture program enriches the broad general education provided by Wilmington College is one of only two colleges in Ohio to offer a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. In contrast to larger land grant universities in the U.S., Wilmington offers a unique mix of both academic and practical experience in our program. Our program’s strength is that it gives students a hands-on experience in career preparation. Wilmington students learn by doing.

The agricultural program draws upon the broad general, liberal arts education provided by WC by adding advanced agriculture courses designed to prepare students for participation in the agriculture industry or pre-professional graduate programs.

“Wilmington’s agriculture program prepared me to succeed not only in the agriculture field, but also in the larger business community by focusing on the applied side of a degree. My Wilmington experience and connections opened doors that I didn’t even know existed.”

– Linda S. ’92, Senior Scientist, Procter & Gamble
