Agricultural Education

Are you interested in helping to shape the future of the agricultural industry? Do you enjoy learning and teaching about nature, plants and animals?

A career in agricultural education may be right for you. Agriculture educators teach students about agriculture, food and natural resources. These subjects help students develop a wide variety of skills, including science, math, communications, leadership, management and technology. Many agriculture educators have a content area specialization such as agricultural mechanics, soil science, animal science, dairy science, horticulture, or natural resources.

A national shortage of agriculture educators exists at the secondary level. It is estimated that there will be hundreds of unfilled positions across the United States each year, simply because not enough students are choosing to be agriculture educators. That means this is a high-demand career with many job opportunities, room to grow, and good salary potential.
