    Agricultural Education



    Agricultural education
    Bachelor of science in agriculture
    134 semester hours

    Agricultural education involves the broad study of agriculture including a core of course work in agricultural economics, agronomy, animal science, agricultural technology management, and horticulture.

    Agricultural education is designed for students who wish to meet requirements to teach agriculture in a public school setting or work in other areas where education and teaching are integral (i.e. extension, agribusiness, etc.). Graduates in this option meet Kansas State Board of Education licensure requirements. An area of occupational emphasis in agribusiness, agricultural production, agricultural technology management, horticulture, or natural resources is available.

    Twelve weeks during the second semester of the senior year are devoted to full-time student teaching. On-campus courses meet during the first four weeks of the semester.

    Students must complete the university general education requirements specified by the College of Agriculture. See the College of Agriculture General Requirements section.
