Overview

A student majoring in Agricultural Science at Texas A&M University–Commerce will be counseled by an advisor in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education, and Communications to ensure that the program developed with the student will satisfy his or her unique interests, needs and professional aspirations. A combination of courses in scientific agriculture, education and general studies provides students with a knowledge of scientific agriculture and the ability to work with and influence people. 

Flexibility in course selection allows a student to place emphasis on a particular field of agriculture or to prepare broadly in agricultural studies. This flexibility will prepare a student to teach in a particular school setting, focusing upon a certain curriculum (e.g., mechanical systems, horticulture, animal science, or agricultural business).

Many aspects of the practice of agriculture are learned through experience. Enrollment in high school agricultural science courses and participation in FFA and/or 4-H are encouraged and recommended, but not required.

Career options:

The Agricultural Science curriculum is designed to offer the student a combination of courses in scientific agriculture and in professional education that will meet requirements for employment and advanced study in different careers in which the emphasis is on formal and informal programs of education. Such careers may include teaching agriculture food, and natural resources in high schools; working as an agricultural extension agent; working as an agricultural representative for a marketing agency, an agricultural supply company or other industries related to agriculture; and serving as an agricultural development consultant in an international program.

A student following this curriculum may be eligible to enter public schools as a teacher of agriculture food and natural resource certified by the Texas Education Agency. A semester-long off-campus professional teaching internship is required.
