The agriculture education curriculum provides the student with a good preparation for transferring to a bachelor completion program at a four-year institution. It is designed for those students interested in teaching in high schools, technical schools, and community colleges. This program emphasizes animal science and general agricultural courses. Education programs vary greatly at four-year institutions so the student should consult the catalog of the college or university of his/her choice for information on specific program requirements.
