UGA Specific Information for Agricultural Communication

Agricultural communication professionals tell the story of agriculture and the environment to consumers, legislators, and other key stakeholders. The Agricultural Communication major prepares students to understand and communicate specialized agricultural science and information through journalism, advertising, public relations, graphic design, and telecommunications. Students are given hands-on opportunities in classes and outside organizations to practice key skills and prepare them for a professional career.

Agricultural Communication students are also given once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to participate in international service-learning coursework, instilling the importance of cross-cultural communication and engagement, which allows students to practice the skills learned in the classroom in a real-world setting for the benefit of others. Upon graduation, our students have an established skill set to translate science, liaise between industry and consumers, and produce communication materials using new media and technology.
