School of Agriculture
The School of Agriculture at UW-Platteville provides a personal, caring atmosphere for more than 800 students. Our students are challenged with problem-solving situations and real-life case studies, and have opportunities to apply classroom theories in practical situations through our on-campus science laboratories, greenhouse, 430-acre university farm, and robust internship program.
The School of Agriculture also offers a diverse array of active clubs and organizations and several nationally competing teams. We strongly encourage students to take advantage of opportunities to participate in these activities as they can help with developing leadership, teamwork, communication, presentation, and professional skill, while also providing an enriching social experience.
We aim to be recognized world leader in undergraduate programs in agriculture, natural resources, and agro-ecology research, and our dedicated faculty and staff work to prepare our students for future career success.
