The College of Agriculture and Human Sciences includes the Department of Human Sciences (formerly Home Economics) and three agriculture-related departments: the Department of Agribusiness, Agronomy, Horticulture, and Range Management; the Department of Agricultural Services and Development; and the Department of Animal Sciences.

Historically, Tarleton has been strong in the discipline of agriculture since its establishment in 1899. Known for most of the first half of this century as John Tarleton Agricultural College, Tarleton's agricultural enrollment has exceeded 1,000 majors since 1991. With 14 Texas universities offering baccalaureate degrees in agriculture, Tarleton's large program is third in number of student majors and fourth nationally among non-land-grant universities. Tarleton's agricultural graduates have a reputation for high performance and for contributions to their professions in agriculture and agribusiness. Many have continued their education and attained graduate and professional degrees at leading universities nationwide.

The degree majors within the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture programs include strong programs in Animal Production, Animal Science, Animal Industries, Agribusiness, Agricultural Economics, Farm and Ranch Management, Horticulture and Landscape Management, and Agronomy and Range Management. The Agricultural Services and Development program, which includes the traditional teacher certification program (Agricultural Education), has received state and national recognition by routinely leading the state of Texas and the nation in numbers of graduates certified to teach. It remains first in the nation today. The program also includes options in International Agriculture, Agricultural Extension/Industry, and General Agriculture that provide strong student internship opportunities. The Department of Animal Sciences also offers a pre-veterinary medicine program.

The Tarleton Agricultural Center, supporting the instructional programs in agriculture, is located on 2,000 acres of University land and includes a 150-cow dairy; beef cattle center and ranch with 70 cows and feedlot calves; 56-sow confinement swine operation; 400-bird poultry operation; horse center with arena, stallion barn, and laboratory; horticulture center with two greenhouses, frame house, and laboratory-classroom; and a meats laboratory complete from abattoir to retail processing and sales. Located adjacent to the regional Texas A&M University Research and Extension Center, the Tarleton Agricultural Center provides excellent employment experiences for Tarleton undergraduate agriculture majors as well as research opportunities for those seeking the master of science degree in agriculture.

Tarleton emphasizes quality teaching in all of the agricultural degree programs. Agricultural faculty include 25 full-time faculty, 19 with doctoral degrees from leading universities across the nation. Several Texas A&M University System faculty members serve as adjunct or graduate faculty.

The Department of Human Sciences provides courses in the areas of dietetics, child and family studies, foods and nutrition, clothing and textiles, housing and design, and consumer economics and resource management. Tarleton presently offers a degree in general Human Sciences with specialty options in teacher certification, child and family studies, extension, and fashion merchandising and a Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics. With over 100 majors, the department also provides course work for approximately 1,000 students a year, most of whom are in education, physical health and training, nursing, and pre-allied health programs. The Department of Human Sciences maintains and manages a Child Development Laboratory School, which provides quality educational programs for children ages 3 to 5 years. The department is currently experiencing an increase in students from other departments and colleges selecting Human Sciences courses for electives and from interdisciplinary programs with the College of Business Administration.

The Department of Agribusiness, Agronomy, Horticulture, and Range Management currently offers five Bachelor of Science degrees. Through the faculty-student advisement process, a course of study is developed to allow the student to pursue his/her interest and potential while preparing the student for a long-term, productive career in production agriculture and/or agribusiness. Though not a requirement for all career goals, a background that includes agricultural experiences either through employment or high school-related activities is valuable and may be supplemented through college work experiences, internships, cooperative education, and mentorships. All of the career tracks within the Department are strongly science/discipline-based with the goal of providing the graduate with an academic background necessary to compete in the current employment market and to be a long-term contributor to the profession.

The Department of Agribusiness, Agronomy, Horticulture, and Range Management Bachelor of Science degrees include:

I. Agribusiness
This degree offers the study of the role of business decision-making involving the financing, production, and marketing of food and fiber products and services. Domestic and international perspectives of this role are provided. Opportunities for industry career positions include food-processing management, market analysis, financial analysis, loan servicing, market research, marketing management, personnel management, and Agricultural Extension Service.

II. Agricultural Economics
This degree stresses quantitative, statistical, and analytical decision-making processes of production, marketing, processing, distribution, and retailing of agricultural products. Common employment areas include the manufacturing and processing industries, financial institutions, state and federal governmental agencies, commodity groups, and farm management firms. Many students choose this option if they wish to pursue graduate studies in agricultural economics areas other than agribusiness management.

III. Agronomy and Range Management
This degree includes emphases in plant science, soil science, and range management. The degree is strongly science based and allows the student to explore the world of soil management and conservation related to the production of food, fiber, and livestock. The degree allows for specialization in agronomy, range management, natural resource conservation, or environmental agriculture. Students earning the degree may choose a career within the agricultural products and service industry, consulting, private or public lands management or environmental restoration, or to pursue a graduate degree.

IV. Farm and Ranch Management
This degree prepares graduates for the economic and financial management of production-related farm and ranch businesses. Employers include commercial banks, farmers' organizations, state and federal governmental agencies, Agricultural Extension Service, agricultural supply outlets, agricultural consultants, agricultural insurance companies, and private or public landholders.

V. Horticulture and Landscape Management
This degree includes the three support areas of science, business, and golf course management, allowing the student to select courses that are necessary for a successful and rewarding career. Many employment opportunities are available in nursery and greenhouse management, landscape design, contracting and maintenance, agricultural extension, park management, and golf course management.

Department of Animal Sciences

Dr. David Snyder, Head

Agriculture Building, Room 116
(254) 968-9222

Professors: Brown, Cadle, Snyder
Assistant Professor: Hines


The Department of Animal Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science degree in three different degree programs: Animal Science, Animal Production, and Animal Industries. In addition, the Department of Animal Sciences offers a Pre-Veterinary Medicine Program. The particular emphasis within each option provides appropriate training according to the career interests of individual students. All students complete a similar core curriculum, required by State and University regulations.

Historically, Tarleton has been known for its practical, hands-on approach to agricultural instruction. To allow for as much student exposure to real-life experiences as possible in an academic program, farm and ranch operations involving almost 2,000 acres of land and eight major teaching centers are utilized as agricultural laboratories. In addition to the animal facilities, several classrooms, indoor laboratories, two indoor-teaching pavilions, and an indoor equine arena are utilized in providing students with valuable "how-to-do" experiences.

I. Animal Science
This degree program provides a strong foundation in the scientific aspects (the "whys" and "hows") of animal production, nutrition, reproduction, anatomy, and physiology. Supporting course work in chemistry, biology, and math provides students with background necessary to an understanding of the complex physiological and biological phenomena that explain why and how animals function and perform.

II. Animal Production
This degree program stresses the practical "how-to" aspects of commercial livestock production with somewhat less emphasis on the "whys" and "hows" of animal physiology and biochemistry. Animal Production is especially designed for students who expect and desire a career in the commercial production, marketing and/or promotion phases of a livestock industry.

III. Animal Industries
The Animal Industries degree program offers students the combination of a strong foundation in animal science courses and basic business courses needed by graduates entering commercial and business enterprises related to animal agriculture.


Pre-Veterinary Medicine Program
Students desiring to pursue a veterinary medicine career can complete, at Tarleton, all necessary prerequisites for application to the professional Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program at Texas A&M University. Acceptance into the DVM program is quite competitive, and pre-vet students are encouraged to work closely with their academic advisor in planning their individual programs of study.

TRANSFER POLICY
Community/junior college students who plan to transfer to the College of Business Administration at Tarleton are advised to take those courses recommended for the freshman/sophomore years as outlined in this section. The appropriate departmental office within COBA should be consulted to resolve questions of course transferability. Upper-division 3000/4000-level courses taught by the COBA should not be taken at a community/junior college.
Credit for business courses taken at another college or university or at a community or junior college and transferred to Tarleton to be applied to a BBA or BS degree in business will be awarded on the following bases:
1. Business courses that are equivalent to a 1000- or 2000-level course at Tarleton will be accepted if the course content is considered by COBA to be similar, with a grade of C or better and no other restrictions.
2. Business courses that are equivalent to a 3000- or 4000-level course at Tarleton will be accepted as satisfying Tarleton advanced credit only if they were taken for advanced credit. Under special circumstances some students may be allowed to petition for credit upper-division (3000-level and above) courses in the Business Core requirements by successfully completing a validating examination through either the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or a departmental examination; however, any such testing requires prior approval of the appropriate Department Head and the Dean of the College of Business Administration. If permission is granted for credit by examination, such credit must be completed before taking any classes for which the course to be validated is a prerequisite. Validation must be accomplished during the first semester of enrollment at Tarleton.
3. Business courses that are advanced (3000- or 4000-level) at Tarleton, but are transferred in as lower-level courses, will be accepted for transfer as lower-level electives with no validation exam, provided that the course grade was at least a C.
4. The maximum hours that may be transferred from a community or junior college with validation and applied to a specific major in business (accounting, finance, CIS, management, marketing, or office administration) is limited to 9 hours. Under no circumstances may more than 68 semester hours be accepted on transfer from a two-year institution to be counted toward a degree.
