Agriculture Education

Associate of Science

This specialization will prepare students to transfer to a university program of agriculture education/extension.  Upon transfer, graduates will select a more specific program of study for a Bachelors degree which will prepare them for teaching at the secondary level or working in the extension service.  Agriculture education majors are also sought after by many industry organizations because of the vastness of the training.  Currently there is a national shortage of Agriculture Education teachers that are interested in teaching as a profession.
