Welcome to the home of top-caliber agriculturists!

This is PSU-Sta. Maria campus, and I am happy to welcome everyone especially you – our partners in development.
PSU-Sta. Maria campus evolved from its humble beginning as a national agricultural high school, agricultural college and now, as a university being one (1) of the component campus of the Pangasinan State University whose flagship program is the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (BSA).
PSU-Sta. Maria Campus offers other significant programs in national development: Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering (ABE); Bachelor of Science in Agri-Business Management; Bachelor in Secondary Education (BSE) with majors in English and Mathematics; Bachelor of Elementary Education and Bachelor in Technology and Livelihood Education (BTLE).

Our concerted and consistent efforts in achieving our goals are manifested in the many accomplishments we have achieved. Our flagship program has already attained Level IV, Phase I Accreditation Status and is gearing towards realizing our dream – to be the Center of Excellence in Agriculture.
Our campus is always at the core of fulfilling our university’s mission of producing professionals who are excellent in their craft and deeply immersed in values of hard work and persistence. We always put a premium on quality education, and our graduates are living testimonies of this claim.
Words are not enough to describe our campus’ magnificence, but I am very proud of our accomplishments.
Come and see what we have and what we can offer!
God bless everyone!

BRIEF HISTORY OF PSU-STA. MARIA

On June 12, 1950, the late Congressman Luciano Millan of the 5th (now 6th) Congressional District of Pangasinan worked for the enhancement of R.A. 2430 authorizing the appropriation of P200, 000 for the establishment, operation and maintenance of the Eastern Pangasinan National High School (EPNAS) in Sta. Maria, Pangasinan. After six years of operation, EPNAS was converted into a college with the enactment of R.A. 4178 known as the Eastern Pangasinan Agricultural College (EPAC).

Offered courses then were Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (BSA) with specializations in Agronomy and Animal Husbandry, and the two-year Associate Agricultural Technology.

On June 11,1978 the collegiate programs, some members of the faculty and staff, facilities and equipment, and a number of building were formally and legally integrated to the Pangasinan State University(PSU) system by virtue of PD 1497 in the school year 1979-1980 and thus become PSU-Sta. Maria (PSU-SM). The college offered degrees in Bachelor of Science in Agriculture majors in Animal Husbandry, Crop Science, Agricultural Education, Agriculture Economics and Agricultural Extension.

Since it became a component college of the university, PSU-SM was able to realize the construction and installation of more infrastructures: Post Harvest, Capability Building Center, under the leadership of the then University President Reynaldo P. Segui with the political will and commitment of His Excellency Pres. Fidel V. Ramos, Sen. Letecia Ramos-Shahani, Cong. Ranjit R. Shahani and President Assistant Benjamin de Leon.

To date, Sta. Maria Campus’ Bachelor of Science in Agriculture has Level IV status and is pursuing its Center of Excellence status. Other programs such as the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, Bachelor of Agribusiness Management, Bachelor of Elementary Education and Bachelor of Secondary Education major in English, and Mathematics has Level II status as certified by the Accredited Agency of Chartered College and University of the Philippines (AACCUP). 

The continuous quality education, the technological and research breakthroughs and the community services that the campus is offering to its clientele in the service area are all geared toward the realization of the University goal of achieving its mission for worldwide engagement.
