Agricultural Education

The Agricultural Education Concentration brings together the unique programs of three departments – Animal Sciences, Education, and Industrial Technology – to provide an agricultural production teaching certification program. The Agricultural Education curriculum develops leadership qualities and knowledge students will need to succeed in the field. Each student gains extensive hands-on experience throughout the program.

Career opportunities for Agricultural Education graduates include instructional positions, extension services, farm service agencies, farm and ranch management, and international agriculture. Graduates of the program are certified to teach Agriculture in the Texas public Schools. Students are required to pass the TASP and departmental Agricultural Education benchmark exam before qualifying to take the Vocational Agriculture TeXes exam for teacher certification.

The following is a complete list of classes that will be required in order to complete the Bachelor of Science in Animal Science with an Agricultural Education emphasis.
