Agricultural Education: Professional Agriculture Emphasis
Master of Science
A graduate-level agricultural education provides students with a variety of career opportunities in agriculture, the life sciences, and formal and nonformal educational settings.
The Master of Science in Agricultural Education with a professional agriculture emphasis provides a higher-education pathway for working professionals who wish to advance their careers in agricultural fields.
Students can choose from two options: the traditional research option, which includes the completion of a thesis, or the professional agriculture option, which provides distance learning options for working professionals and requires completion of a cumulative project instead of a thesis.
Students in the professional agriculture track will complete 9 units of required coursework online and can choose 21 remaining units from courses that best fit their career ambitions. They will then complete a cumulative project that is practical and applicable to the work they are performing in their professional lives.
