This paper is an analysis of the salary levels in a group of people who graduated, in 2014, from Polish higher-education institutions with agricultural degrees, i.e. degrees in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, veterinary science, zootechnics and fishery. This analysis is based on data from reports published as part of the Polish National System for Monitoring the Situation of Polish University Graduates. In a group of 1,953 graduates with agricultural degrees, the average gross salary in the fourth year after graduation amounted to PLN 3,416.85. This shows that the salary paid to such graduates after four years of work was lower than the average salary in Poland for all working year-2014 graduates with second- -cycle degrees (PLN 3,765.30) and long-cycle master-level degrees (PLN 4,209.21). Moreover, the data shows that the highest average pay in the fourth year after graduation is earned by graduates with forestry degrees. It is worth noting that the results of the study are relative in nature. If other degrees, such as biotechnology, food technology or human nutrition, were included in the analysis, the classification would probably be different. This paper is by no means an exhaustive explanation of the topic and, given the limitations mentioned above, should be regarded as a contribution to further analyses.
