Master of Agricultural and Extension Education

The agricultural industry is constantly evolving, making it important to understand what opportunities are available. The Master of Science in Agricultural and Extension Education is designed for agricultural science teachers, extension agents, and other professionals involved in formal or informal education organizations, as well as agricultural professionals who work with applied agricultural technologies or agricultural communications.

The degree plan is developed according to faculty specializations in agricultural education, communications, leadership, or system technology management. Our professors strive to meet the custom needs and interests of individual students.
