Agricultural Education graduates are the teachers, leaders, and communicators for the agricultural industry. Our students combine their passion for agriculture and their talents working with people to lead and teach the next generation of agriculturalists. 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. Students in Agricultural Communications and Leadership work in partnership with industry, government, and extension leaders to develop skills through authentic, hands-on learning experiences. 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.
