The mission and vision of the Agricultural Education and Communication Department is to develop leaders, educators, and communicators to advance and advocate for the agricultural industry in a global economy. In addition to the department's  long history of leadership and service to the state's agricultural education profession, it also boasts California's only agricultural communication major, widely considered one of the country's premier undergraduate programs. Through a partnership with the university's Brock Center for Agricultural Communication, plus unique Learn by Doing opportunities, students gain the necessary knowledge to be effective communicators who are fully equipped to promote agriculture and serve the needs of the industry.
