A word from the dean...
Are you a potential undergraduate or graduate student with an interest in agriculture, natural resources, food science, or textiles and apparel studies?
I welcome you to visit the College of Agriculture and Related Sciences (CARS). We have programs that offer you a solid academic and experiential learning foundation to help you achieve your educational and career goals.
CARS includes four divisions:
Agriculture and Natural Resources 
Cooperative Extension 
Cooperative Research 
Human Ecology 
At DSU, The College of Agriculture and Related Sciences is the bedrock of the 1890 land-grant tradition. Our history began with the second Morrill Act  and is reinforced daily through our teaching, research and extension activities -- the three core components that define the land-grant mission.
