The Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communications (ALEC) includes a student-centered faculty and staff offering undergraduate degrees leading to professional careers. Using a blend of asynchronous and synchronous courses, our programs offer a unique combination of practical, hands-on experiences and critical people skills required for success in today’s fast-paced careers. Upon graduation, our students are uniquely equipped for leadership, education, communications, and training roles in the broad field of agricultural sciences and human performance in both domestic and international settings. ALEC offers four undergraduate degrees:
We offer four minors, in specific areas, that provide our students with foundational knowledge and concepts required for success in future careers such as communication specialists, Extension educators, and students seeking positions as leaders in domestic or international settings. Most students take up to 33 hours of coursework in their specific major, 30 hours in technical agriculture or business, and 43 hours in University mandated core curriculum. University Studies-Leadership Studies majors choose two minors to compliment the leadership studies curriculum. All four majors have room for free electives, and many students opt to do minors or double majors in complementary fields.
