As a student in the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences you’ll get the support, knowledge, experience, and, occasionally, the extra push you need to achieve more than you may be able to imagine. We don’t see you as who you have been. We see you as who you can become. Someone who can make a difference on a big scale. Here, you’ll apply science to solve challenges in diverse fields such as animal and human health, retailing and industry, helping professions, engineering, and food production and preparation. You’ll learn how to advance sustainability through better thinking as you find ways to keep the world and all its inhabitants healthy and resilient.

You’ll leave here with more than a degree — you’ll also gain powerful real-world experience and establish lifelong connections through our 100% Engagement Initiative. You may take part in research at an Arizona Experiment Station, get involved in outreach programs through statewide Cooperative Extension initiatives, or explore other opportunities on campus, in the local community and throughout Arizona. An engaged learning notation on your transcript will show employers and graduate schools that you’ve benefited from quality career preparation experience beyond the classroom.
