The Department of Agricultural and Extension Education
The Department of Agricultural and Extension Education strives to provide students with content knowledge, technical skills, and applied experiences that will establish our students as successful individuals post-graduation from the College of Agriculture and Consumer Environmental Sciences.
The primary focus of the Department of Agricultural and Extension Education is to develop the skill set and content knowledge of each individual student in an effort to make our graduates well-rounded individuals, and prepared for the experiences they will encounter in the "real world" following graduation from our university. This includes strengthening the leadership skill set of each student through applied experiences and classroom training.
The degree programs offered through the AXED department equip students to influence the future. Our undergraduate and graduate emphasis areas in agriculture education, technology education, agricultural communications, extension, government agricultural careers, and international agricultural development, while different in coursework and experiences, all revolve around a common goal. Our graduates "Change Attitudes, Change Lives, and ultimately, will Change the World."
