Become an AGNR Terp! 

Whether developing safer, more efficient technologies for the food industry, creating new bio-energy systems or crossbreeding wheat genes to find heartier varieties, science will be your guide at AGNR. Our programs take you from the classroom straight to the lab - complete with the latest research tools and experiments funded by state and national partners. Students across our 32-plus areas of study work with faculty as they test new theories on campus and at five research and education centers in Maryland.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and keeping in mind the health and safety of our future Terps, we will not be hosting in-person visit opportunities in fall 2021. Instead, we are focusing on offering a wide array of virtual visits and information sessions open to all prospective Terps, their families, and educators. We hope you will join us at one of our events listed below this fall!
