Agricultural Education students combine their passion for agriculture and their talents working with people to lead and teach the next generation of agriculturalists. Our graduates lead people and agricultural organizations in wide variety of roles. The Agricultural Communications and Leadership emphasis is a highly flexible degree program which allows students to create a customized plan of study to meet their needs. Our faculty work in partnership with industry, government, and extension leaders to create authentic, hands-on learning experiences, where students work alongside industry professionals to tackle authentic projects and problems. In addition to agricultural education and leadership course requirements, students complete course work in agribusiness management, agricultural sales and marketing, plant sciences, animal sciences, agricultural systems management, natural resources and food science. All students complete at least one internship with an agricultural business, public or private agency or commodity organization.
