Frequently Asked Questions
Why should a student pursue a degree in your major?
Graduates in agricultural education are equipped with the tools to educate others in all areas of the agriculture industry. This four-year degree comes with a certification to teach agriculture in any US public school — grades 5-12. However, this program is not limited to teacher certification, but toward the development of agriculture educators.
What makes UK's program stand out?
UK's undergraduate program is the first in the nation to have students presenting research at national, peer-reviewed, research conferences on a consecutive basis. Research in multicultural education from faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students are the first-of-its-kind in the agricultural education profession. The program prides itself as a leader in "Culture and Cognition."
What opportunities will they have?
Agricultural Education students are provided the opportunity to student teach abroad as collaborations are being established with Puerto Rico FFA. In addition, UK students participate in a plethora of service learning projects, such as the UK College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment's Field Day which attracts over 1,200 middle and high school youth. The service learning opportunities landed the UK Agricultural Education Society to be recognized as the best chapter in the nation for community service at the National ATA Convention. Also, students conduct and present research at peer reviewed research conferences across North America.
