Undergraduate

Start your future. Become an AGNR Terp! 

You don't have to get your hands dirty to be an agriculturalist or resource scientist. 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.

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. Consider it good preparation for med or vet school. And if you like getting dirty, we can make that happen too.

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 2020. 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!
