As one of the largest colleges of agriculture and life sciences in the country, we offer many excellent academic programs.
Nearly 50 majors and minors help you tailor your academic career, along with certificates and distance education courses. Several of our programs rank among the very best in the nation.
Your teachers are some of our 400+ nationally recognized faculty members.
In general, our programs focus on five large societal problems, or Grand Challenges: feeding our world, protecting our environment, improving our health, enriching our youth, and growing our economy. And you may specialize in business and policy; environment and conservation; medicine and health; engineering and technology; food, animals and plants; or people and connections.
Our degree programs vary greatly and have many different requirements, but they do have some things in common. Most have a hands-on component, whether that’s an internship, research, study abroad, or community service. Many of our majors also have a strong focus on science, technology, engineering, and math. You’ll also find an emphasis on leadership throughout our programs. For example, many programs are linked to a student organization or an honor program. All this helps prepare you for the 21st-century job market.
We partner with Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, which further expands your options for research and outreach.
So take your pick—you can’t go wrong!
