    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.

    Sixteen weeks during the second semester of the senior year are devoted to full-time student teaching.

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