        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, and it was known for most of the first half of this century as John Tarleton Agricultural College. Enrollment in Agriculture and Human Sciences exceeds 1,200. With 14 Texas universities offering baccalaureate degrees in agriculture, Tarleton’s program is third in number of student majors and fourth nationally among non-land-grant universities. Tarleton’s graduates have a reputation for high performance and for contributions to their professions in agriculture, agribusiness, education, and human sciences. Many have continued their education and attained graduate and professional degrees at leading universities nationwide.

        The majors within the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture 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 Department of Animal Sciences also offers a pre-veterinary medicine program.

        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 department also includes options in International Agriculture, Agricultural Extension/Industry, and General Agriculture. Each program provides strong student internship opportunities.

        The Tarleton Agricultural Center, supporting the instructional programs in agriculture, is located on 2,000 acres of University land and includes a dairy; beef cattle center, feedlot, and ranch; confinement swine operation; poultry facility; 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 Agricultural Research and Extension Center, the Tarleton Agricultural Center provides excellent employment experiences for Tarleton undergraduate agriculture majors and research opportunities for those seeking the master of science degree in agriculture.

        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 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 Human Sciences maintains and manages a Child Development Laboratory School, which provides quality educational programs for children ages 3 to 5 years.

        Tarleton emphasizes quality teaching in all of the agricultural and human science degree programs. Agricultural faculty include 32 full-time appointments, 25 with doctoral degrees from leading universities across the nation. Several Texas A&M University System faculty members serve as adjunct or graduate faculty.

Instructors: Fox, Kenworthy

        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 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 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.

       The Didactic Program in Dietetics is currently granted approval status by the Commission on Accreditation/Approval for Dietetics Education of the American Dietetics Association, a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education.

       Students desiring entrance to the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) must make an application to the Department of Human Sciences upon completion of 60 to 70 semester credit hours. Students must have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 to be accepted into the DPD. Transfer students with more than 70 semester hours must likewise make an application and have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0.

       Once the student has been admitted into the DPD, he/she must maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 until graduation. The student’s overall GPA and performance in the DPD will be evaluated and discussed each semester in an advisement session prior to registration.

       To become a Registered Dietitian (R.D.), a student must

1.        Successfully complete an approved DPD, such as the program at Tarleton State University, and receive a letter of verification. The letter of verification can only be granted by the designated DPD director upon completion of the Degree Plan -- Dietetics Option outlined above with a minimum overall GPA of 3.0.

2.        Apply to and be accepted by a supervised practice program, either a dietetics internship or a preprofessional practice program (AP4).

3.        Successfully complete a supervised practice program, enabling the graduate to establish eligibility to write the Registration Examination for Dietitians.

4.        Successfully complete the Registration Examination for Dietitians, allowing the graduate to become a Registered Dietitian.

EMPHASIS AREAS

       A student pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Interdisciplinary Business may elect Restaurant Management, Residential Management, Fashion Design, Fashion Merchandising, or Housing and Interiors as the supporting field for his/her degree. These emphases combine Human Sciences and the various business disciplines. Information about these areas of study may be obtained from an advisor in either the Department of Human Sciences or the Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems.
