THE DEPARTMENT OF    COMMUNITY &    LEADERSHIP    DEVELOPMENT

 COMMUNITY COMMUNICATIONS AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT                           Career and Technical Education

 

The Department of Community and Leadership Development supports two undergraduate degrees.  Within each of these programs there are two options, offering students a wide variety of employment opportunities.

 

COMMUNITY COMMUNICATIONS AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

It’s a mouthful of a name, but it opens a world of opportunities. Community Communications and Leadership Development is an interdisciplinary social science major. In this program you’ll learn to integrate communications, sociology, journalism, and community development theories and apply them to real-world situations involving local communities and agricultural organizations.


The major focuses on written and oral communication skills; strategic problem solving; critical thinking; understanding of group, organizational, and community dynamics; and ethical decision-making.

 

Students can earn a B.S. degree in Community Communications and Leadership Development (CCLD) and specialize in either Agricultural Communications or Public Service and Leadership.   The CCLD program is housed entirely in the department. 

Career and Technical Education

 

Students can also choose a B.S. degree in Career and Technical Education and specialize in either Agricultural Education within our department or Family and Consumer Sciences Education within the Department of Family Studies.
