LARGEST AGRICULTURAL AND LIFE SCIENCES COLLEGE IN THE U.S.
The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences takes a holistic approach to educating our students, preparing them to thrive in today’s competitive job market. Their reputation for academic excellence is in part a result of the College’s emphasis in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) — we produce more STEM graduates than any other U.S. college of agriculture.
Our award-winning faculty members are discovering the fuels of the future, unlocking genetic mysteries to cure diseases, and working to ensure a healthy and abundant food supply. The students they have educated and the scientific advancements they have shared have made life better for millions.
Access to a quality education for everyone was the key tenet to the Morrill Land-Grant College Act that established our university. We are proud that our College still has one of the highest numbers of students who are the first in their family to attend college.
Our students use their passion and knowledge to solve society’s top Grand Challenges:
FEED THE WORLD
More than 500 of our students study abroad every year in 60 different countries, organizing research projects and taking part in exchange programs.
IMPROVE OUR HEALTH
Along with our Entomology department researching the Zika virus and how it spreads, the Nutrition and Food Sciences department aims to improve the quality of health across the state of Texas, and beyond.
GROW OUR ECONOMY
From researching coffee diseases to pioneering water-efficient technology, faculty work with students in and out of the classroom, having conducted research with more than 800 undergraduates in the college.
PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
Texas A&M was the first U.S. university to partner with the International Union for Conservation of Nature, cataloging plants and animals at risk of becoming extinct.
