Course Title: AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE AND EDUCATION
Agricultural Science and Education is a course that deals primarily with farming, nature, natural resources, land management, and more. A graduate from this field of study can work as a professional in the Agricultural sector. During your course of training in your preferred institution, you will learn the key concepts of horticulture, land management, Animal Care, health, and more.
Agricultural Science is self-employed, meaning you can choose to take the knowledge you will acquire from school and invest it in yourself.
As a graduate in this field, you will generate revenue by teaching agriculture in junior and senior high schools, local communities, universities, industries, and cooperative extensions. If teaching is not your style a bigger opportunity is available in the multifaceted agricultural industry; and further their education or scientific interest with a career in communications, social services, production, finance, sales, or recreation.
The course is one of the many that are not pursued by many students, you will secure well-paid jobs in this career field that traditionally has unfilled positions every year.
Another reason you should take this course is that you can choose to work in both classroom and outdoor settings.
Positions you can work as include:
- High School Ag Teachers
- Community Colleges Instructors
- University Professors
- Coordinator (of undergraduate and graduate classes in agricultural education)
- Organizer, Collegiate Future Farmers of America (FFA), and agricultural education clubs
- Agricultural Literacy Coordinators
- Extension Advisors
- Corporate Education Specialists

Course Cut of Point
160 is the minimum cut off point for AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE AND EDUCATION as specified by JAMB.
Also, the required cut-of-points for this course (AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE AND EDUCATION) depends on the school you are applying for, basically many schools have a different minimum cut of marks for accepting students in this area, which may be higher or even lower than JAMB recommend. Also, it is important to note that your O'level result (WAEC, NECO, GCE etc) is a primary criteria for screening, continue reading to know the required subjects you must have on your O'Level result
