The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences has been a part of Tifton for almost a century. Its faculty and staff discover agricultural solutions and deliver them to people around the state, nation and world.
In recent years, we've pulled undergraduate students under that umbrella. Our world-renowned scientists are the teachers. Our laboratories, fields and region are the classrooms. In partnership with other south Georgia institutions, and armed with a clearer picture of what is needed from us, we are bringing more UGA degrees closer to home for many in south Georgia.
For more than 100 years, the Griffin Campus has played a leading role in the development of modern agriculture in the South. Today, the Griffin Campus is one of the premier agricultural research centers in the region and is poised to address research, extension and teaching needs of the 21st Century.
The undergraduate programs, first offered in Griffin in 2005, are degree-completion programs for transfer students or those seeking a second bachelor’s degree. Three undergraduate majors are offered, plus a graduate program in plant protection and pest management.
