The College of Agriculture and Human Sciences has had its roots firmly established at Prairie View A&M University since 1879 when the University’s academic curriculum was expanded to include agriculture and home economics. The College of Agriculture and Human Sciences is unique in that it operates in the true land-grant tradition of teaching, research and service through its academic, extension and research components.
The College offers a diverse curriculum to students through its Department of Agriculture, Nutrition and Human Ecology and prepares them to respond effectively to complex social issues relating to the food, agricultural, human and natural resource sciences. Innovative strategies are used in the delivery of classroom, laboratory and experiential learning activities that prepare graduates to engage in a diverse and global labor force. The Master of Science in Human Science offers a student an opportunity to begin preparation for state licensure as a marriage and family therapist and other professional licenses.
Scholarship and Fellowship Opportunities
Graduate student hourly positions and graduate research assistantships are available within the College through the Cooperative Agricultural Research Center and the Cooperative Extension Program.
The Dietetic Internship Program is a supervised program in dietetics, and students who have completed a baccalaureate degree and hold a valid Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) verification statement are eligible to apply.
