What will I learn in an agricultural communication minor?

The program is meant to complement existing University courses, such as Range and Forest Administration and Policy (REM 494/694), and to provide a minor degree for students interested in becoming communications professionals, such as journalists, multimedia producers and public relations practitioners, within agriculture, biotechnology, extension and environmental professions.

The courses cover reporting and public relations fundamentals, how students can leverage technology to become more effective communicators, and how to better communicate about policies impacting land use, food production and natural resource management.

The program was developed in consultation with the University's Reynolds School of Journalism and Department of Communication Studies. Students should consider taking courses from those units as part of this minor to bolster their knowledge of the field.

Course offerings for the minor in agricultural communications

Majors schools of agriculture offer communication and education programs, and this new minor in our College helps position the University among its peers in terms of course and program offerings. We expect this program to be popular among students and to further provide options for students seeking to enhance their skillsets. Coursework will also follow agricultural issues within the Great Basin, and how those issues are communicated and discussed.
