Choosing a degree in agricultural education leads to a variety of promising and fulfilling
careers within agriculture. Individuals holding a degree in agricultural education
are well qualified and in high demand throughout the agricultural sector. Career opportunities
that are consistently available to graduates exist in a multitude of areas including
secondary (High School) education, corporate training, management, sales, public relations,
governmental representatives, non-profit representatives to list a few. Nearly 50%
of agricultural education graduates go on to enter a career outside of secondary education
within the field of agriculture. Agricultural education graduates possess a unique
skill set in agriculture and education which positions them to take advantage of the
shortage of certified agricultural educators throughout the country and the shortage
of qualified agriculturalists required by the private and public sectors. By becoming
a part of agricultural education you will be entering a field of endeavor that will
build and maintain a quality lifestyle among a network of agricultural educators who
share your passion!
