Within these departments, students will find a myriad of opportunities for classroom learning, research and field work.

Through our Agricultural Research Program and our Cooperative Extension Program, we are able to research issues of importance to North Carolina and also provide research-based outreach training to citizens across the state and around the world. Also through these active programs, students will find a myriad of opportunities for classroom learning, research and field work. 

We encourage you to explore all the academic possibilities that help prepare you to enter the local and international agricultural industry.
