About the College
The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences consists of three departments:
- Agricultural and Consumer Sciences
- Animal Science and Veterinary Technology
- Wildlife, Sustainability, and Ecosystem Sciences
- Center for Environmental Studies
Teaching the Agricultural Sciences has been part of Tarleton from its establishment in 1899. Tarleton State University was known for most of the first half of the twentieth century as John Tarleton Agricultural College. Today, that tradition is stronger than ever with student enrollment in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences exceeding 1,950. Tarleton's program is second in number of student majors in Texas, and third nationally among non-land grant universities.
Graduates of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences have a reputation for high performance and for contributions to their professions in Animal Science, Agribusiness, Education, Wildlife Science, Ecosystem Sciences, Environmental Sciences, and Veterinary Technology. Additionally, many of our graduates go on to veterinary school and other professional schools.
