The Leadership and Communication option prepares students to become effective leaders, ambassadors, and/or advocates for the agricultural industry at local, state, national and international levels. Students pursue a course of study that is multidisciplinary providing them with a strong foundation in the agricultural sciences and natural resources, as well as transferable skills in leadership and communication. In addition to completing general education requirements, the option allows students to enroll in a breadth of coursework in technical agriculture areas such as agricultural mechanics, agricultural resources and economics, animal science, entomology, plant and soil sciences. Concurrently, students complete professional course work in areas of leadership and communication, as a focus.
