The food we eat, the air we breathe, the animals we nurture, the planet we love
At the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, you can explore virtually all the elements that make our world a safe, sustainable place to live. You can design neighborhoods that serve all communities. You can explore streams, rivers, oceans and skies to improve life for the animals that dwell there. You can develop new ways of farming to nourish our growing population.
Your studies may take you from high-tech laboratories, to fields filled with large, sweet strawberries, to classrooms led by inspiring faculty, to community shelters, to child development labs, to barns brimming with newborn sheep. Our research, faculty and students are diverse, but our goal is the same: We work together to address climate change, conserve habitat and make sure all people have access to the food, space and hope they need to thrive.
