The mission of the Department of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences is to provide educational opportunities for students from various backgrounds to be successful in a diverse society. The department is dedicated to teaching the principles and concepts of agriculture and its applications. The curricula prepare students for employment, professional advancement, and graduate studies. The department accomplishes its goals through small classes and individual attention to students in a nurturing educational environment.
In keeping with the teaching component of the land-grant mission of Lincoln University, our department focuses on preparing students to be competent and competitive in scientific, technical, educational, and professional occupations.
Students who choose a major in this department will study toward a Bachelor's of Science degree in agriculture, with various concentration areas (agribusiness, animal science, natural resources management, and animal science) and a minor (wildlife management). Students may also prepare for veterinary school by customizing their program of study to meet the unique requirements of this profession.
The faculty of the department is committed to providing quality and personalized educational experiences that assist students in their personal development and preparation for meaningful careers, gainful employment, and graduate studies.
Many faculty in our college are also involved in Cooperative Research.
