What can I do with a major in Agricultural & Environmental Education?

Whether teaching people about their part in creating sustainable agricultural and environmental systems, or helping employees learn a new skill, students graduating in Agricultural and Environmental Education (AEE) are prepared for these challenges. Majors in agricultural and environmental education are prepared for a broad range of careers in the agricultural and environmental sciences where social, interpersonal, communication and teaching skills are needed. By all accounts, there is a tremendous shortage of teachers in California, particularly in the sciences.

Graduates have found employment in public schools, non-profit organizations, financial institutions, state and federal agencies, nature preserves, community organizations and in sustainable development.
