Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at Tarleton State University. We provide the premier hands-on undergraduate educational experience in Texas with a focus on both agricultural and environmental sciences.


The College is comprised of 45 faculty and 1900 students in three academic departments:

Our graduates are in high demand by business, government and industry due to an outstanding faculty, superior classroom and laboratory facilities, and our personal, hands-on approach to teaching and learning.


Mastering academic challenges is only part of a successful college experience. Developing interpersonal, leadership and social skills is also essential. To hone those skills, students can participate in numerous student organizations, judging teams, and show teams. Add the many other extracurricular opportunities on and around campus and the essentials for becoming a society-ready graduate await you in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at Tarleton State University.


If you are interested in graduate studies, our many partnerships with industry, the Center for Agribusiness Excellence, the Texas Institute for Applied Environmental Research, and the Texas A&M Agricultural Research and Extension Center, all located in Stephenville, make for varied and exciting opportunities for graduate work.
