The Department of Agricultural Sciences offers a variety of options, allowing you to tailor your degree to your specific interests. With degree areas in horticulture, agronomy, agriculture education and more, the Department of Agricultural Sciences will prepare you for a career you'll be passionate about.
As a student, you’ll have numerous opportunities for hands-on learning at the University’s 350-acre farm, the Derrickson Agricultural Complex (commonly referred to as the University Farm), and at Browning Orchard. The University Farm includes equine facilities, greenhouses, livestock operations and a small and large animal hospital, where veterinary technology and veterinary science students assess, diagnose and treat cats, dogs and other domesticated animals.
Our experienced faculty members offer personal, one-on-one guidance to students and are committed to helping you succeed. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with faculty members on agricultural research through our Undergraduate Research Fellowship program. You can begin as early as your freshman year and you’ll have the opportunity to present your work at state, regional and national conferences.
You will have plenty of opportunities to get involved as an agriculture student at MSU in any number of the more than 100 student organizations on campus, including the MSU Equine Club.
The best way to learn more about our agriculture programs is to visit MSU. While you're here, you'll get a chance to tour the campus and facilities, talk with faculty members and current students and get a taste of life on campus.
