The Department of Agricultural, Leadership, and Community Education at Virginia Tech is committed to preparing students for success in professions that apply agricultural content to social settings. We offer a major in Agricultural Sciences (AGSC), a minor in Leadership and Social Change (ILRM), and a minor in Teaching and Learning in Agriculture (TLAG).
Diverse Career Opportunities
Our Agricultural Sciences students will experience an interdisciplinary program of study designed to address the growing needs of today’s evolving agricultural and food systems. Students may enroll in one of two options: Teaching and Learning in Agriculture, or Community Leadership and Development.
The Teaching and Learning in Agriculture option is for individuals planning a career related to the education of youth and adults regarding agricultural concepts. The Community Leadership and Development option is for individuals interested in non-formal education and leadership development to improve the sustainability of communities across Virginia and the United States.
Our Beyond The Classroom programs range from internships, undergraduate research, study abroad opportunities and various student organizations.
