According to the University of Arkansas, "Opportunities for employment and post-graduate study are numerous for graduates of the Department of Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences. Crop Science graduates become involved in crop production or find employment in public agencies providing support services for agriculture (e.g., Extension Service, State Plant Board, Natural Resources Conservation Service), or as consultants serving production agriculture, in the agrichemical and seed industries, and in agricultural research programs.

The crop science major includes courses in crop management, production agriculture, plant breeding and genetics, crop and forage production, pest management (weeds, insects, and plant diseases), and soil fertility."
