Undergraduate: Major Requirements

The Department of Agricultural Communication, Education, and Leadership at The Ohio State University is committed to educating our students and preparing them for a successful career in the agricultural industry. We offer three majors - agricultural communication, agriscience education, and community leadership. You can find the curriculum requirements for each of our majors and their specializations, if applicable, along with a sample 4-year plan. These are designed to help you in your academic planning, but recommend you meet with your academic advisor regularly to ensure your progress.

Curriculum for our majors has slightly changed over the past few semesters. Please select the curriculum guide based on when you first enrolled in your major.
