Our undergraduate degree program provides maximum flexibility in designing and structuring a course of study to meet students' individual needs. The Agricultural Sciences degree should be seriously considered by students desiring programs of study not currently available in any other agricultural department (such as those involving a minor in communications, recreation, or environmental studies in agriculture); students wishing to pursue two or more areas of specialization; students preparing for leadership positions in agriculture that require excellent communication and leadership skills, as well as a breadth of agricultural background; or students who have not selected a departmental major in the College of Agricultural Sciences but know they are interested in a agriculture.
Areas you can emphasize within this program are general agriculture, leadership and communication and teacher preparation.
For Allison Meadows, versatility is key to being a good educator.
If you ask Allison Meadows what makes a good agriculture teacher, she’ll tell you it’s passion, leadership and life experience. Meadows, who has wanted to teach agriculture since her freshman year in high school, and who is pursuing her master’s in Agricultural Education, has all three.
