The Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture emphasizes “hands-on learning” and is a gem hidden among the larger schools at the University of Connecticut. The School was established in 1941 with trust money from the Ratcliffe Hicks estate. Mr. Hicks (1843-1906) left instructions in his will to start an agricultural school to encourage and support farming in New England. The School offers an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in a wide variety of disciplines within the plant and animal science majors.
