Agriculture Education

Carver Farm

Would you like to educate and inspire tomorrow’s farmers and agriculture professionals? Did you enjoy participating in FFA and can picture yourself leading your own school’s chapter?

Help your dream become a reality by considering a BSED in agriculture education from Lincoln University of Missouri! Ag education teachers train students in agriculture, food and fiber, natural resource, mathematics, other science topics, leadership, communication and management. They also often lead the FFA chapters at their schools. Be a part of something bigger! As an ag education major, you will get to study with LU’s College of Agriculture, Environmental and Human Sciences (CAEHS)and the School of Education (SOE), since the degree program is a partnership between the two schools. CAEHS is a college known for cutting-edge research and its role in developing the next generation of agriculture professionals and leaders.

The SOE provides the training and support you need to become an effective teacher who is ready to make a difference in students’ lives. Through state-of-the-art, hands-on learning, you will gain practical experience at 770 acres of LU farmland, including the organic Alan T. Busby Farm, which is one of the largest organic certified research farms in the Midwest at 273 acres. LU’s three farms have assisted in the support of beef cattle, goats, sheep, swine, plant and soil science and environmental science research, as well as several Extension activities.

Students pursuing this degree will gain practical teaching experience within the LU School of Education. These experiences will help you make professional connections, providing you an advantage as you begin your post-graduate career. As a student, you will observe education professionals on campus and in the local community, as well as put your classroom education to the test through practicums, internships and student-teaching placement.
