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. Students completing a degree in Agricultural Education, Teacher Certification are well prepared to teach agriculture, advise an FFA chapter, and supervise SAEP student projects. Our faculty work in partnership with state and national leaders in Agricultural Education/FFA to create authentic, hands-on learning experiences, where students work alongside industry professionals to tackle authentic projects and problems. In addition to agricultural education 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.
