The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS with a Double Major in Education and Interdisciplinary Agriculture is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Demonstrate technical knowledge and skills necessary for entry level Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources teachers in Agricultural Business, Agricultural Communication, Agricultural Engineering Technology, Animal Science, and Plant and Soil Science.

  • Manage, organize, and conduct Supervised Agricultural Experience Programs, Leadership, Career, and Speaking Development Events.

  • Develop annual and long range plans (program of activity, semester and lesson plans, etc.)

  • Use effective research-based techniques to develop a positive classroom environment.

  • Create lessons and units of instruction to meet the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills requirements for Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources classes.
