Benefits of Agriculture Education
Agricultural education introduces students to many aspects of agriculture, food, and natural resources. Students in agriculture courses learn a wide variety of skills including relevant applications of science and math; communications and technology; and management and leadership. Agriculture instruction incorporates both classroom and laboratory experiences. Student engagement activities often occur outside of the classroom through a Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE). The SAE is developed by the student and supervised by the agriculture instructor.
Leadership education is integrated in the agriculture classroom. Students are encouraged to join and participate in FFA.
Courses in the agriculture program include Introduction to Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Environmental Science.
