I wanted to know the best three-year bachelor’s degrees, so I began looking through the online databases of U.S. universities.
My first suggestion: a degree in agriculture, business or a related field.
I wanted an education that I could transfer into a job in a variety of industries and be ready to tackle a wide range of career fields.
I also wanted a degree that would help me learn a lot about a particular field, and would prepare me for a job I might have a hard time finding.
I eventually settled on a master’s degree in horticultural sciences from the University of Nebraska.
In the interest of full disclosure, I am currently employed as a graduate assistant for the U.N. and the UMass School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
I have also done a lot of freelance writing.
My primary source for this article is the University Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Horticulture and the USDA Rural Development Agricultural and Technical Service.
