After I complete my CCAF, I would like to pursue a Master's degree in Agronomy. I am currently trying to gather as much information as possible so when that time comes, I can immediately start my new goal. Any tips on colleges, courses, or just general gee whiz about this would be greatly appreciated.

Agronomy is not terribly mainstream, so that alone should help weed out the colleges which have no worthwhile accreditation. My only advice is to thoroughly research any college and ensure that their accreditation is both nationally recognized and current! Far too many "colleges" prey on military personnel.

While I don't have a degree in Agronomy, SSgt (Join to see), I am familiar with some of the other aspects of your question. Look for a land-grant university first (this will ensure a level of friendly support for a military service member). If you are wondering what a "land-grant" school is, search on "Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862" to see what I mean. Then see if the school offers the Agronomy degree you seek. My alma mater, Texas A&M University, does not offer a remote option. However, Iowa State University does. Good luck with your studies!

I grew up in Iowa and was big into FFA. If you want a good military friendly college for ag related degrees, go ISU, Nebraska, or Texas A&M.

Maj William W. 'Bill' Price Thank you for the input. I will have to look up the Morrill Land Grant Act of 1862 because I keep seeing that term "land-grant university". I was originally looking at Iowa Sate University because I liked what I was seeing on their website, but after looking through my military friendly college catalog, they really didn't seem to have much going for the military unfortunately. I do plan on contacting A&M (since UT didn't have much to offer haha) as well as Nebraska.

My alma mater, Auburn University, may be just the school you seek, SSgt (Join to see). As suggested by Maj William W. 'Bill' Price, it is a land-grant university and its College of Agriculture is known far and wide and includes multiple agronomy specialties.

SSgt (Join to see), Auburn is only about 65 miles from Eufaula. Also, Auburn is only about 55 miles from Maxwell AFB, which is in Montgomery. "It's Great, to be, an Auburn Tiger!"

LTC Stephen C. - If only I could attend it on campus... Right now I have to stick to online if I want to attend anything. Beautiful building though.
