Welcome to Texas Tech University's Department of Agricultural Education and Communications. The department works closely with the College of Education and College of Media & Communications to offer a valuable degree program.

In addition to receiving a quality education, departmental students are part of a family-like atmosphere and attend many classes together at the university. Faculty members in the department use a student-centered approach to show students how to successfully function in today's fast-paced, technologically advanced job market. Teachers in the department know their students and are available to help students with class projects, advising and job applications.
