The Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Education major has a unique focus on agriculture, food and natural resources sustainability for the benefit of communities in Michigan, the U.S. and the world.

This major prepares graduates as teachers (grades 6-12) in agriculture and natural resources, as well as educators in government, community organizations and nonprofits and graduate studies. The U.S. Department of Education aims to incorporate green- and sustainability-related knowledge and skills standards into the existing National Career Clusters including agriculture, food and natural resources.

Students in the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources Education program who wish to become secondary school teachers must also apply for the Secondary Education Teacher Preparation Program in the College of Education. See more details on secondary education preparation.
