The University of Arizona is now enrolling students for its online Master of Science in Agricultural Education with an emphasis in professional agriculture. The program begins in the fall.
Students in the 30-hour, predominantly online program will prepare to teach agriculture and life sciences in formal and non-formal educational settings. The program is designed to prepare students for careers in secondary teaching, as extension coordinators, or in agricultural businesses. The professional agriculture emphasis is a non-thesis based program that instead requires a cumulative project.
Required coursework includes courses in research, methods, and project design; communicating knowledge in agriculture and life sciences; and technology management. Other courses include: team and organizational leadership; philosophy and practices of instructional methods; and workshop in teaching at the college level.
The University of Arizona, located in Tucson, is regionally accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
