The Agriculture Education program provides students with the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts (AA) degree, which will transfer to many four-year institutions. This program is an excellent course of study for students who are interested in pursuing careers as a secondary agriculture educator, agriculture manager, and as agriculture representatives in sales, public relations, extension, trade organizations, commodity groups, communications, and international agriculture.
