This is an organized blend of technical courses in agriculture and natural resources; professional development courses and experiences; and breadth requirements, designed to give students academic diversity in their undergraduate experience. To develop their expertise in agriculture and natural resources, AGED majors take at least 30 credits in three of the following areas: animal and food sciences; entomology and wildlife conservation; food and resource economics; engineering technology; and plant and soil sciences. Courses in these areas can contribute toward a double major and/or a minor for the AGED major. The majors develop their professional selves via a series of education courses, covering topics such as teaching materials and approaches; adolescent development; diversity in the classroom; and classroom management. Leadership skills are enhanced through involvement in FFA activities and participation in other student organizations. All of this leads to the capstone student-teaching experience in the senior year, which is done after successful completion of the Praxis tests. This program hold many career-preparation programs throughout the year, covering topics such as resume writing, interviewing, networking, and graduate school. Career Fairs are held each year, allowing students to mingle with prospective employers.
