Agricultural Education

Agriculture continues to be an important part of the high school curriculum in North Carolina. The Agricultural Education major emphasizes the teaching and learning process in both formal classrooms and other settings. A broad understanding of agriculture is required so that students will be able to communicate effectively agricultural information to a variety of audiences.

This program leads to a teacher license in agricultural education; however, students must select from one of the following subject matter concentrations: Agribusiness Management, Agricultural Engineering Technology, Agronomy, Animal Science, Horticultural Science, Natural Resources, or Poultry Science.  An example of a degree audit for the Agribusiness Management concentration is listed under the Degree Audit.

Courses include:

Fundamentals of Agricultural and Extension Education, Computer Applications and Information Technology in Agricultural & Extension Education, Administration and Supervision of Student Organizations,  Conducting Summer Programs in Agricultural Education, Methods of Teaching Agriculture, Student Teaching in Agriculture (senior year, off-campus)
