Agricultural Education and Agricultural Sciences combines two programs.
Agricultural Sciences is an undergraduate studies program that provides maximum flexibility in designing and structuring a course of study to meet the students' individual career goals. The goal of the Agricultural Sciences program is to help students identify the agricultural career in which they are most interested and build a course of study that will qualify each student for his or her chosen profession. Advising is of paramount importance in this process and major emphasis is placed on career advising.
Agricultural Education offers course work that serves teachers and leaders in agriculture. The M.S, M.Ag. and M.A.I.S. degrees may be pursued with an emphasis in leadership, communication, pedagogy, extension and/or technical agriculture. Candidates work with an adviser to develop programs that meet their specific needs as indicated by their occupational objectives.
