Extension Education (Minor)
To see more about what you will learn in this program, visit the Learning Outcomes website!
The minor in Extension Education is open to all interested baccalaureate students. The minor is especially appropriate for students enrolled in agricultural, natural resource, 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; the planning and delivery of nonformal educational programs; the 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 9 credit hours from a required core and 6 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. Course substitutions may be made with minor advisor and minor administrator approval.
As the student nears completion of the minor, the student and their minor advisor will complete and submit to the minor administrator the Application for Minor Certification. The minor program administrator will certify the completion of the student’s minor program. Certification must be submitted no later than the enrollment period for the student’s final semester at NC State (prior to the first day of their last semester). The minor must be completed no later than the semester in which the student expects to graduate from his or her degree program.
