Impact the ag industry through teaching
Prepare yourself for licensure in secondary or middle school settings in the agricultural education program. Huntington University is one of only two higher education institutions in Indiana offering four-year degrees in agriculture, making HU uniquely positioned to train future agriculture teachers from a faith-based perspective in a small college environment. The agribusiness sector in Indiana is large and diverse, but there is a shortage of agriculture instructors for high school. Our excellent education program paired with our ag studies program represents an opportunity to meet a need in the state by training future ag teachers.
