Historical Note

Established in 1857 as the Farm Department, the agricultural course is the oldest academic course at Michigan State University. The early focus of the course was the practical instruction of scientific agriculture. The Farm Department, in combination with the Agriculture Department, Superintendent of Farm, and the Practical Agriculture Department, formed the Agriculture Department/Division in 1907. The name was changed to the Agriculture School in 1944; to the Agriculture College in 1955; and finally in 1966 to the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
