Welcome from the Associate Dean

Thank you for considering the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. We call it CALS for short.

We've put a lot of information here to help you make a decision. If you can't find something specific, please contact us.

CALS is a true leader in agriculture and the life sciences. Our Plant and Animal Sciences programs are ranked 17th by the NTU and 14th by QS (Quacquarelli Symonds Limited). In the world – not just the U.S.

What we do at CALS matters – and our College will help you learn and during your four years with us.  You'll be working with faculty who are leaders in their fields; we'll share the scientific fundamentals and practical skills you'll need to start your career, but remember your education isn't limited to the classroom.  We support you with a whole menu of extracurricular options including CALS honors, study abroad, undergraduate research, clubs and organizations, etc.  

Best wishes, and good luck.

John Dole 
Interim Associate Dean and Director, Academic Programs
