Career, Technical and Agricultural Education’s Agriculture program combines agricultural technical skills with rigorous coursework, leadership training, and an exploration of the ethical and philosophical issues related to genetic engineering and other current agricultural topics. The Agriculture program consists of three components: classroom/ laboratory experiences, the Supervised Agricultural Experience Program (SAEP) which will allow students to apply what they have learned in the classroom in real world practical jobs and experiences, and the Career Technical Student Organization, FFA, which provides co-curricular activities that build public speaking skills, personal growth, teamwork and leadership skills.
Agriculture nurtures leaders in every field imaginable. Students completing an agriculture career pathway will have solid skills in areas related to agriscience, biotechnology, turf management, landscaping, food science, forestry, environmental science, agricultural engineering, and agribusiness management. Georgia’s strong dependence on Agriculture will only continue to expand the Agriculture-related career opportunities for many years.
