On Friday, May 10th, the College of Agriculture, Forestry & Life Sciences (CAFLS) awarded approximately 583 degrees, which included 15 PhD degrees, 60 Master’s degrees, and 508 Bachelor’s degrees.*
“The careers our graduates will pursue are diverse and challenging — from fisheries and wildlife biologists, to food scientists, to biochemists and molecular biologists, to packaging scientists. They will face the world’s pressing problems including feeding a growing world population, finding cures for cancer and tropical diseases, and studying the impact of climate change,” said Tom Scott, dean of the College of Agriculture, Forestry & Life Sciences (CAFLS).
“I believe that we have prepared them with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful in their careers and in their lives. I wish each and every one of them success, health and prosperity as they leave us today, and into the future as well,” said Scott.
* Based on preliminary numbers as of April 16, 2013. Final graduation numbers will be available in June.
