The Agricultural Science program provides students the opportunity to study the basic structure, conduct and performance of the agricultural industry. The courses taken in this program combine the study of economic principles and the basic agricultural sciences.

Collectively the program offers a broad background in agriculture. Required courses taken in the program give students training in all phases of agriculture; and elective courses give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge in one of the specialization areas.

An undergraduate pre-veterinary course of study is also available to prepare students for entrance into veterinary school.

Bachelor of Science in Education: Agriculture Teacher Education


Returning Fall 2017, Pending MDHE Approval

The Department of Career & Technology Education's Agriculture Teacher Education program is designed for students who are interested in certification to teach secondary agriculture education (grades 9-12) in the state of Missouri. The curriculum provides an excellent background in both agriculture and teaching methods.

The Department of Career & Technology Education believes students should obtain the hands-on experience that employers expect and that high tech agriculture careers demand. In addition to their student teaching experiences, students learn by doing through such opportunities as welding or repairing tractors, assisting in agronomic field test plot research and plotting cattle futures.
