There's a time for PowerPoints and pencils and then there's a time to apply the theories and processes you've worked hard to learn into a real-world application. In the College of Agricultural Sciences, you'll be asked to roll up your sleeves and experience your education through hands-on-practice in our research fields, greenhouses, and laboratories. Then you can take your education one step farther and participate in an internship program for college credit.

Our goal is to offer all students in the College of Agricultural Sciences experiential learning opportunities. Students here have the chance to gain on-the-ground skills in the form of internships, externships, service learning, research, study abroad and our new Leadership Academy. Whether they’re working internationally or at home, our students are developing the communication, analytical and teamwork skills that will make them the future leaders in their fields.

There are numerous ways to enhance your educational experience.  Experiential Learning as part of your curriculum in the College of Agricultural Sciences is just one of them.
