Agriscience Education M.Ed./M.S.

Agriscience Education degrees and agriscience teachers are in high demand. If you’re interested in molding a new generation of biochemists, farmers, and environmentalists, then this is the program for you. We emphasize the importance of learning not just about agriscience, but also the best methods to teach it.

As a graduate of Auburn’s Agriscience Education M.Ed. program, you’ll be eligible to apply for Alabama Class A professional educator certification.

The M.S. non-certification program provides an interdisciplinary graduate-level education for community-based or international educators who do not wish to gain teacher certification/licensure in the United States.

If you have a bachelor’s in agriculture or related field and want to teach, you’ll want to look at our Alternative Certification M.Ed.
