Agricultural Education and Communication Department
BS in Agricultural Science
Every year, many students enroll into the Agricultural Education and Communication (AGED) Department and more specifically, the Agricultural Science major. Some of those students assume Agricultural Science is the same as the Crop Science major while hoping to obtain a Pest Control Advisor’s (PCA) license. While it is possible to satisfy the requirements to take the PCA exam through the Agricultural Science major, many students need to piece together their schedule each quarter until they graduate. However, the Agricultural Science major offers students a unique opportunity to expand their education.
By taking the individualized route in the Agricultural Science major, those students are able to get an understanding of all the different sectors of agriculture with a focus on pest management. This project would help those who are currently in the Agricultural Science major as well as those who have yet to experience it. By making a guide, also known as an AGED Pathway to PCA, future students will not have to piece together certain classes in hopes it will fulfill the PCA requirements. Instead, students will make informed decisions when it comes to the classes required for the PCA license.
