See what students say:


Students come to Lincoln University for a variety of reasons—75 of them, to be exact. That’s how many degrees are offered across this Missouri school’s five colleges, whether that’s in the school’s College of Agricultural, Environmental, and Human Sciences, or in the arts, business, education, or nursing. (Graduate options are also available in a few of those fields.) The school does lean into its agricultural roots, and those students are challenged to use science to address critical world issues, including human and animal health, world hunger, and climate change. There are opportunities to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture degree with an emphasis in agribusiness, animal science, natural resource management, or plant and soil science. Minors within that department include Geospatial Information Systems and Wildlife Management. Students can expect internship options within the agricultural industry, participation and access to cutting-edge research, opportunities to attend conferences and symposiums, and competitive scholarships.

Across the rest of the school, students can expect to find the sort of personalized experience that comes from having classrooms of fewer than 20 students. Additional options for housing, summer mentorships, faculty work, and special courses are available to those exceptionally talented and motivated students who qualify for the 18-credit Horace Bond Honors Program. And accommodating every pathway to college, Lincoln University also offers an ROTC college-based, officer-commissioned program, as well as an Extended Studies department that provides classes that advance careers and expand minds, regardless of age.
