Agriculture

UW Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences

Agriculture is applied biology, and it’s where a lot of today’s cutting edge science is getting done. It’s an industry on the frontier. Future farms won’t just produce food and fiber, they will also produce medicines, manufacturing materials and fuel. Students can learn about current farming methods and how they’re being combined with ground breaking technologies such as gene transfer, cloning and global positioning to create new farm products and farming systems that are more sustainable, diversified, profitable and environmentally sound.

Students in our college can explore their interests, get a solid education and put the two together in a satisfying and incredibly interesting career.
