The Agricultural communications and journalism (ACJ) degree program allows you to combine your passion for agriculture and/or environmental issues with enhanced communications and journalism skills. Both the agricultural and environmental options feature challenging courses that will enhance your communications skills and your knowledge of natural and applied sciences.

Agricultural education involves the broad study of agriculture including a core of course work in agricultural economics, agronomy, animal science, agricultural technology management, and horticulture.

Agricultural education is designed for students who wish to meet requirements to teach agriculture in a public school setting or work in other areas where education and teaching are integral (i.e. extension, agribusiness, etc.). Graduates in this option meet Kansas State Board of Education licensure requirements.

Sixteen weeks during the second semester of the senior year are devoted to full-time student teaching.
