17 PhD Programs in Agricultural Science 2023


The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Agricultural science encompasses a wide area of topics, and classes can be taken at schools all over the world. Topics include food science, farming, forest technology, agroecology, veterinary medicine, biological engineering, wildlife technology and crop science.
