Today's rapidly changing world needs people prepared to solve its local and global challenges in the areas of agribusiness, climate change, a safe and reliable food supply, protection of natural resources, improved nutrition, public health, and alternative energy sources. A degree from CAFSSS may qualify graduates for careers not only in food production, but also in a variety of other fields.
Our outstanding graduate degree programs in Aquaculture and Environmental Studies are producing well-prepared leaders in these important and growing fields. Our land grant programs (LGPs) in Community Research and Cooperative Extension offer a wide range of opportunities for internships and long-term employment.
If you are considering a career in one of these degree areas, I am certain that you will enjoy the friendly learning atmosphere in the CAFSSS. You will work with a team of academic advisors and mentors who are committed to helping you reach your academic and career goals.
If you are a resident of Kentucky – and whether you are involved in agriculture or not – you can take advantage a variety of services offered by our Extension faculty and staff, who are available in selected counties of the state. I hope you will contact them for assistance.
