Bridge the gap between agriculture production and today’s consumer: you’ll do that here.
Our students learn environmentally friendly practices first-hand as they work with livestock at the University farm, conduct science and horticultural research at the Agriculture Research Center and horticulture incubator lab, and take part in projects with government and private organizations.
In our premier agriculture programs, you'll learn the science, art, and business of agriculture and implement them into action in internships, laboratories, and real-world settings.
The Department of Agriculture is housed in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
