The Degree

When Agricultural Education at Texas A&M University first began, we served the purpose of preparing future Secondary Agriculture Teachers. Our department has now grown in scope and size. Agricultural Science provides the means for students to earn a degree and as well as a teacher certification in Secondary Agricultural Science.

Opportunities

The coursework is aimed at creating the finest agricultural science teachers. However,  other careers can often benefit from this training in agriculture and people. Students typically accept positions in a variety of areas including teaching, but sometimes expand into sales, insurance specialists, juvenile officers, breed organization directors, county extension agents and other communications positions.
