Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College has a long history of providing students with a top tier education. With nationally recognized faculty and a small class learning environment, our students excel.

ABAC’s first-in-the-nation Rural Studies bachelor’s degree offers emphases in Business and Economic Development, Politics and Modern Cultures, Social and Community Development, and Writing and Communication.  This degree is an interdisciplinary one shared by the School of Business, the School of Human Sciences, and the School of Liberal Arts. Students enrolled in these areas work with faculty advisors to participate in unique internship opportunities.

In the School of Science and Mathematics, the bachelor’s degree in Biology is designed for students who plan to go on to Graduate school or work as biologists or for those who seek professional education in medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, forensic science, and other clinically related fields.

ABAC’s Nursing program continues to graduate quality nurses who consistently score in the top percentile on the NCLEX test and who have no problems finding jobs.

Diversified Agriculture, Natural Resource Management with majors in Forestry or Wildlife, and Turfgrass and Golf Course Management are bachelor degree programs in the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Students get real-world experience in these programs and often participate in academically related clubs and organizations such as FFA, Turf Club, Wildlife Club, Cattlemen’s Club, Forestry Club, Horticulture Club, Agribusiness (NAMA), Equestrian, AET, and 4-H.

In addition to club experiences, ABAC offers an Honors Program and several national Honor Societies; opportunities to showcase artistic, drama, and musical talents; and annually participate in study abroad opportunities in countries such as China, Germany, Greece, England, and Nicaragua. For students who are talented in writing or communication, they have the ability to work on the literary journal Pegasus, the award-winning newspaper “The Stallion,” or be active with WPLH, ABAC’s radio station.
