The faculty of Agriculture – KNUST

In 1953, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources founded the Faculty of Agriculture. It began as a Department of Agriculture and eventually became the School of Agriculture, to provide a variety of ad hoc agricultural courses to workers from Ghana’s Ministry of Agriculture. It also offered agricultural instructors training in rural science. In January 1958, a four-year diploma program in Tropical Agriculture began, but in 1961, it was elevated to a three-year BSc degree program.

The three-year program was replaced by a four-year program in 1968. Along with the degree program, two-year diploma programs in horticulture, agricultural extension, and farm management were also offered. In 1997, these diploma programs were phased out.
