The minor in Extension Education is open to all interested baccalaureate students. The minor is especially appropriate for students enrolled in agricultural, human sciences, natural resources, and nutrition majors and/or those students who are interested in careers with the Cooperative Extension Service or other nonformal educational/community outreach organizations. Students completing a minor in Extension Education will become familiar with the organization, structure, and mission of Cooperative Extension; planning and delivery of nonformal educational programs; management and leadership of volunteers; communication media and technology; and leadership theory, principles, and skills. The minor requires a minimum of 15 credit hours, with 6 credit hours from a required core and 9 credit hours from a list of advised electives. A grade of “C” or better is required in all courses used toward the minor. Courses used to satisfy the minor may not be taken for credit only.
