Undergraduate Agricultural Communications Program Tops in the U.S.
The University of Arkansas study tabs Texas Tech program ahead of all others.
The agricultural communications undergraduate program offered by Texas Tech University’s Department of Agricultural Education and Communications is ranked as the best in the nation, according to a new University of Arkansas study.
“I was excited to see the No. 1 national ranking for our department,” department chairman Steve Fraze said. “We have a very talented and dedicated faculty combined with an outstanding set of students. Being ranked No. 1 nationally recognizes this fact and helps in the recruitment of students, not only undergraduate but graduate students as well. It also makes Texas Tech a desirable destination for future faculty.”
Forty programs throughout the country were identified in the study, titled, “Characteristics of U.S. Agricultural Communications Undergraduate Program.” Led by Jefferson Miller, a professor in the Department of Agricultural Education, Communications and Technology at the University of Arkansas, the research focused on creating an account of existing programs, a description of those programs and identifying program demographics and top programs.
Following Texas Tech were the University of Florida, Oklahoma State University, Texas A&M University and Kansas State University.
