Agricultural Education, Communication and Marketing

header image


The Agricultural Education, Communication and Marketing program works to prepare students for high-demand careers within the agricultural community through hands-on classes, highly-applicable course material, and a collaborative and supportive professional community of students, professors, and alumni. We believe that our students are the future leaders and communicators of the agricultural industry. By choosing to pursue a degree in the Agricultural Education, Communication and Marketing program, you are tapping into the expansive network, resources, and possibilities of a Big 10 university while embracing the small, tight-knit community found within CFANS on the University of Minnesota Saint Paul Campus.




"Our mission is to prepare students to be successful leaders, educators, and communicators in the agricultural, food, and natural resources field."
