Hands-on Learning
No matter the program, we have unique learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. Whether it's a plant in a field, animals in a barn, or a petri dish in a lab, you'll have plenty of opportunities to get your mind working and your hands dirty.

We are dedicated to discovering, teaching and delivering the science required for healthy living to flourish.

Our statewide research impact

The Research and Education Centers (RECs) play a central role in this mission by providing faculty and students with the opportunity to conduct experiments across a wide range of environments and production systems. CAES has eight off-campus REC facilities located throughout the state.

This research network is vital to Georgia agriculture and collectively allows faculty and students to address local production concerns as well as to answer more fundamental research questions and further the development of new technologies related to agriculture and natural resources.
