College of Agriculture to add music minor


Students in Kansas State’s College of Agriculture will have one additional career path following announcements that the college will add agricultural music to its curriculum in the Fall 2018 semester.

“Ain’t it something?” Robert Ritchie, dean of the college, said. “We’ve been fantastic in listening to what our students are asking for, and more than anything, they want country music.”

According to the College of Agriculture’s website, students who choose to take the agriculutral music minor will be able to choose from classes such as Foundations of Fiddling, History of Country Music and Applied Square Dancing, among others.

“We’re proud to partner with other departments here at K-State to offer this great opportunity to our students,” Ritchie said. “Where else can you get this opportunity? Definitely not KU.”
