The purpose of the Agricultural Education program at UW-Platteville is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions as high school agriculture teachers. Outside of the classroom, the majority of county-level extension agents and vocational technical institute agriculture teachers were also prepared initially as high school agriculture teachers.

Our program offers an emphasis on agribusiness education, which includes a cross section of classes from all areas of agriculture, as well as classes focusing on the business, marketing, and management practices specifically related to agriculture.
