The K-State difference

The program culminates with an internship teaching agricultural courses and advising students in an FFA chapter.

Students are prepared to apply for a Kansas teaching license or certificate when they graduate. The Kansas teaching license allows graduates to teach in other states while they transition to an in-state license.
