Overview
The programs of study offered in Agricultural Education are designed to provide both comprehensive and specialized training to prepare graduates for careers in a wide range of fields of agriculture. In addition to being prepared for licensure as teachers, graduates are professionally prepared for work in cooperative extension and other federal and state programs and services, as well as international education endeavors. Graduates also may find employment as educational directors and consultants with agribusiness firms and organizations. Studies may culminate in the BS, MAg, MS or PhD degrees. The Agricultural Education program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Education Preparation (CAEP).

The undergraduate teaching option is designed to qualify the bachelor’s degree recipient for the Oklahoma Agricultural Education Teaching License. This license is recognized as meeting requirements for initial employment as a teacher in most states. Graduates look forward to careers ranging from Agricultural Education teacher and Cooperative Extension Educator to agricultural sales, marketing and production positions. Some students find it advantageous to elect a dual major i.e., Animal Science/Agricultural Education, Agricultural Education/Agricultural Communications or Agricultural Education/Horticulture, thus meeting requirements in both Agricultural Education and another major within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. The undergraduate Agricultural Education major is structured to provide educational experiences in general education, agriculture and professional education.
