Focus on Agricultural Education
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 completion of my Master of Science in Agricultural and Extension Education degree has provided relational and financial advancement at Tyson. I have the great pleasure of working on an agricultural project in Haiti. The project actually began with a grant proposal I completed for one of my classes. I am hoping to be involved with many more projects in developing countries.”
