UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences
At the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES), students don’t just learn in the classroom—they get in the field (or greenhouse, lab, or barn), get dirty, and get firsthand experience. The instructors are known around the world for the research they do on the food, fiber, and environmental issues that affect lives every day. UGA prepares its students for the agricultural challenges of a dynamic, growing world with a progressive, experiential education.
The college has 21 undergraduate majors and over 30 graduate programs across nine academic departments: agricultural and applied economics; agricultural leadership, education, and communication; animal and dairy science; crop and soil sciences; entomology; food science and technology; horticulture; plant pathology; and poultry science. CAES also has extended campuses in Griffin and Tifton, Georgia, with select transfer (third and fourth year) and graduate academic programs. Students at these campuses have the opportunity to learn from research faculty in a close-knit atmosphere. No matter the campus where CAES students study, they’re prepared for a career in Georgia’s number one industry—agriculture.
