Agricultural Education (B.S.Ag.Ed.)

Required course work includes the university requirements (see regulation J-3) and the following:

This major is approved by the State Board of Professional-Technical Education for the preparation of high school agriculture instructors. Graduates who have completed at least 28 credits in agricultural education, and who meet the state certification requirements for a Standard Secondary Teaching Certificate, are eligible to teach secondary agricultural science and technology in Idaho. Students must be admitted to the Teacher Education Program, which requires a grade-point average of at least 2.75, before being allowed to enroll in upper-division teacher education courses and participate in student teaching. The Idaho teaching certificate transfers to most states in the US. In addition, government and business agencies and the Cooperative Extension System that seek persons with education in both agriculture and education provide employment opportunities for graduates of this curriculum.
