Academic Programs

Agriculture, MS


The graduate program in agricultural sciences is designed to further the professional competence of those individuals engaged in production agriculture, careers in agricultural and related agencies, businesses and industries, and/or agricultural education and extension.

The Agricultural Sciences program maintains four locations with working laboratories. The Agriculture Center is home to the Indoor Arena, Meat Science Lab, Equine Science Facilities, and a greenhouse. Nearby is the Horticulture Center with two greenhouses and a classroom. The William R. Harrell Engineering Technology Center provides excellent advanced teaching and research opportunities in the areas of power and machinery, electrification, geomatics, soil and water conservation, irrigation, drainage, landscaping, bio-fuels, and wood/metal construction and fabrication. The 1740-acre Gibbs Ranch is home to purebred and crossbred beef cattle herds and a meat goat flock, along with additional plant, soil and animal resources used for instructional and research purposes.

Career Opportunities

Approximately twenty percent of our population is involved in occupations directly related to agriculture. Sectors such as production, banking, marketing, teaching, processing, and service in governmental agencies rely on the productivity of modern agriculture in meeting the daily needs of society.


The department is pleased to have various scholarships available to graduate students. Scholarships are one-time awards and are not automatically renewable (Exceptions: Ann T. and Charles T. Mallery Endowed Scholarship; San Antonio Livestock Exposition Scholarship; Glyn and Martha Gilliam Scholarship). A student may reapply in subsequent years if eligibility requirements are met. Students MUST be registered for six or more hours in Agriculture each semester or forfeit the scholarship for that semester.

The ScholarX program must be used to apply for departmental scholarships. Please note that application and admittance to the University is required prior to being able to access ScholarX. The program enables you to apply for all scholarships for which you are eligible, including those outside the Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences. The deadline for departmental scholarships is February 1; non-departmental scholarship deadlines vary.
