        The Department of Agricultural Services and Development was created with the flexibility to design career programs for students. Included are programs to certify one to teach agricultural science, qualify for government agricultural jobs (including agricultural extension), and prepare as a professional in agriculture sales and service, agricultural communications and promotions, or in the production of agricultural products. Students who have had agricultural science, FFA, 4-H, or science courses in high school have excellent backgrounds for the programs. Internships are a part of most options.

        The Department of Agricultural Services and Development administers the Bachelor of Science Degree with the following degree programs and support areas:

I.      Agricultural Services and Development

        A.     Agricultural Science with Teacher Certification

        B.    Agricultural Communications

        C.    Agricultural Extension/Industry

II.     Agricultural Services and Development–International Agricultural Services

III.    Interdisciplinary Agriculture
