It was created as one of four Arkansas high schools to teach agriculture, horticulture and the art of textile manufacturing. Today, the university grants bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees through its various campuses. With cutting-edge research capabilities, Arkansas State is building on its first hundred years and looking to the future.
