College of Agriculture and Natural Resources

Agricultural and Applied Economics
Today’s dynamic agricultural industry demands flexibility, creativity, and critical thinking skills more than ever before. The Agricultural and Applied Economics department provides excellent learning opportunities across a broad spectrum of capabilities, and our graduates are finding work in many different fields.
Agricultural Communications
Agricultural Communications majors receive a broad liberal education in agriculture with an opportunity to specialize in selected subject matter areas. Students take courses in journalism, public relations, advertising, and broadcasting.
Animal Science
We are excited about the good things going on in Animal Science! We apply land-grant principles of learning, discovery and engagement for the benefit of students, consumers and clientele associated with animal agriculture. In the past few years, our research productivity and relevance has been ranked 7th and 5th, respectively, in national comparisons of Departments of Animal Science.
Ecosystem Science and Management
Ecosystem Science and Management integrates rangeland ecology and watershed management, soil science, and entomology. Our students' education is enhanced by learning not only of their discipline but also how their discipline relates to others. Our research increasingly tackles the information gaps that are at the frontiers of science and management that lie in the connection between disciplines. Our extension programs offer integrated options needed to face real-world problems that are often not separated along scientific disciplinary boundaries.
Family and Consumer Sciences
Family and Consumer Sciences integrates the fundamental components of human life—food, shelter, clothing, human relationships, and family--with larger societal systems. Through programs in textiles, apparel and design; food and nutrition; and human development and family sciences, our department prepares learners to meet the opportunities and challenges of today’s complex world.
The Microbiology Program at the University of Wyoming provides outstanding educational opportunities to prepare students for rewarding careers in the basic and applied microbiological sciences. Participating students benefit from instructional excellence, individualized attention in both academic and career advising, and opportunities to conduct independent undergraduate research in many different areas of Microbiology.
Molecular Biology
University of Wyoming’s Molecular Biology Program provides students with the education and research experience needed to excel in biological research and biotechnology. The emergence of molecular biology has blurred the distinctions previously drawn between biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, zoology, and botany by identifying the many common, unifying principles that are the essence of all life forms. The goal of the Department of Molecular Biology at the University of Wyoming is to introduce students to these principles and undertake fundamental research to extend the frontiers of biology.
Plant Sciences
In the Department of Plant Sciences, you receive hands‑on training in pursuit of a B.S. in Agroecology that will open the door to career opportunities as you bond with the world of plants. Our nationally-recognized faculty are trained in state‑of‑the‑art approaches that encourage students to learn the fundamentals of plant growth and to apply those lessons to food, feed, ranches, and landscapes.

The mission of the Department of Veterinary Sciences to help ensure that livestock, wildlife and companion animals in Wyoming and the region are healthy through a combination of teaching, professional service, extension and research activities and that spontaneous diseases are accurately diagnosed.
