College of Agricultural Sciences | Agricultural Education and General Agriculture | Interdisciplinary Program Detail


Graduate Areas of Concentration

Three agriculturally related areas are required. Areas may be applied economics, agricultural education, animal science, botany and plant pathology, crop science, entomology, fisheries science, food science and technology, horticulture, rangeland ecology and management, soil science, toxicology, wildlife science, or other areas approved by the College of Agricultural Sciences.

The Department of Agricultural Education and General Agriculture offers course work that serves teachers and leaders in agriculture. The Master of Science (MS), Master of Agriculture (MAg), and Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies (MAIS) degrees may be pursued with an emphasis in leadership, communication, pedagogy, extension, and/or technical agriculture. Candidates work with an advisor to develop programs that meet their specific needs as indicated by their occupational objectives.



A minimum of 45 credits is required for the degree with a minimum of 24 credits outside of the major. The program of study will include a major field and two minor fields. The major field must be in the College of Agricultural Sciences and contain a minimum of 12 credits (excluding research or thesis credit.) Students have the option of a research paper (3–6 credits) or thesis (6 credits). Each minor concentration must contain a minimum of 9 credits. No more than 9 blanket numbered credits are to be contained in the program, excluding research paper or thesis.

The program is administered by the academic department of the major field and requires the department head’s signature. The student’s committee will consist of a representative from the major and each minor field. A Graduate Council representative will serve on thesis programs. The committee will meet prior to the end of the student’s second quarter in the program to approve the student’s program of study proposal. The proposal will include the student’s academic/professional background, intended occupational/educational destination, and rationale for the course combinations. A final oral examination is required and may include questions from both the course work and the research paper or thesis.
