CSU, Chico Introduces Master of Science in Agriculture Education

The California State University, Chico, College of Agriculture is now accepting applicants to its new online Master of Science in Agriculture Education. The program is designed for credentialed agriculture teachers and allows those with a baccalaureate to take graduate-level courses from universities across the nation to earn a Masters in Agriculture Education.   

Mollie Aschenbrener, program lead and assistant professor of agriculture education, knows first-hand how important and difficult it is for working ag teachers to receive a master’s in agriculture education. Before coming to CSU, Chico she taught high school ag for 11 years. “This is a great opportunity for agriculture instructors who are busy with their students year-round and don’t have time to accomplish their goal of receiving a master’s,” said Aschenbrener.  “The online curriculum will allow them to earn their degree from home at their own pace.”

Applicants can apply online at www.csumentor.edu between now and April 2, 2012 for the 2012-2013 academic year. Applicants will be informed of acceptance in early May, and courses start in June.

For more information about the master’s in agriculture education, Aschenbrener can be reached at 530-898-4568 or by e-mail at maschenbrener@csuchico.edu.
