The agriculture and natural resources industries need strong leaders. The ever-increasing intricacies of the agricultural industry make it all the more important to have employees in the industry who understand the technical aspects of agriculture as well as the human dimension. The Agricultural Leadership major provides students the opportunity to prepare as generalists in agricultural sciences and natural resources while developing a strong understanding of leadership theory and its application. Agricultural Leadership graduates seek careers in extension, politics, governmental agencies, non-profits, corporate agriculture, higher education and small business.

The Agricultural Leadership curriculum at Oklahoma State University is guided by five core values: commitment to agriculture, authentic leadership, diversity, critical thinking and professionalism. Agricultural leadership faculty align course objectives, learning opportunities and student experiences with the five core values. Beginning students study historical and theoretical foundations in leadership, authentic leadership and transformational leadership before exploring contemporary leadership issues, leadership program facilitation and current scholarship in the discipline. Specific topics within course work include leadership styles, power, decision-making, ethical leadership, motivational theories and team processes.

In addition to leadership course work, the curriculum provides a broad introduction to the agricultural sciences and natural resources and allows students to develop an area of emphasis or pursue a minor in areas such as Animal Science, Soil Science or Agricultural Economics.
