|The Agricultural Education concentration is designed to consolidate the unique services of three different departments to establish the Agricultural Production teaching certification program that is necessary to teach Agriculture in Texas public schools. To develop agricultural education professionals, the Animal Science Department, Education Department, and the Industrial Technology Department have combined their knowledge to design a curriculum to develop leadership qualities and knowledge needed to succeed in the field.
To secure these qualities, each student will be involved with course work and extensive hands-on experience. This plan offers various career opportunities that include, but are not limited to, instructional positions, as well as extension services, farm service agencies, farm and ranch management, and international agriculture. Students will be required to pass the TASP and departmental Agricultural Education benchmark exam before qualifying to take the Vocational Agriculture TeXes exam for teacher certification.
