“I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture …” With the global population projected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, those words of George Washington (1794) have never been more relevant or agriculture more important than it is today.

At the College’s Department of Agriculture, Nutrition, and Food Systems, we are dedicated to offering programs designed for students interested in any of the broad range of exciting and challenging careers that are critical for providing current and future generations with adequate amounts of nutritious food through efficient, sustainable agriculture and food systems.

Through our Animal Science, Equine Studies, Nutrition, and Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SAFS) majors, our extensive course offerings, our farm and research facilities, and an outstanding and dedicated teaching and research faculty, our graduates are well prepared for careers in the dairy, equine, fish aquaculture, food crop and ornamental plant industries, as nutritional scientists or registered dietitians, or to pursue veterinary or M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.
