The School of Agriculture at Tennessee Tech University is extremely fortunate to have approximately 323 students majoring in Agriculture and pursuing one or more of 12 academic programs.
A student-friendly atmosphere provides a "home away from home" environment, where students, faculty, and staff become family.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds representing counties from all parts of the state of Tennessee as well as many other states. They hail from states as far west as California, as far east as North Carolina, as far north as Pennsylvania and as far south as Texas. Approximately half of our students come from farm backgrounds, and the ratio of male and female students is approximately 50 percent.
Although TTU is ranked among the top universities in the south, our students perform academically above the university average. Many of our students are invited to join Phi Kappa Phi, Mortar Board, and other campus honor societies. Our students also score high on national standardized agricultural exams.
Students are very active in clubs and organizations and have won several awards in state, regional and national competitions. These competitions enhance their quality of education received at TTU.
Many of our students receive professional training through internships and other employment opportunities. These experiences also enhance students’ opportunities for career placement following graduation.
Come join us at Tennessee Tech University and receive a quality education in a student-friendly atmosphere where students are our top priority.
