Sprouting Interest in Agricultural Journalism

Posted by Jill Kline on September 12, 2008

Although agricultural journalism is not technically part of the journalism school, the achievements are just as numerous and noteworthy as those in any other journalism sequence. The Agriculture Journalism reunion was a chance for students and alumni to celebrate successes and discuss the future of Agricultural Journalism.

The Thursday evening get-together included food and fellowship as well as presentations from faculty and current students. Proud grins spread across the faces of attendees as Tom Payne, Vice Chancellor for Agriculture and Dean of the College of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources, spoke about the most recent developments of the school, which included a new focus area on Food and Wine.

Current Agricultural Journalism major and president of Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow, Rachel Duff, also spoke. She recognized the many Mizzou Ag-J students who placed in the national Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow Critique and Awards. Overall, Mizzou students brought in over twelve different awards.

Agricultural Journalism may not be well-known yet; but it is definitely a growing interest. The school boasts their largest number of students ever, and with new advancements each year the trend shows no sign of stopping.

    Dear Jill
    I am Ramesh Adhikari from Nepal. I am a lecturer of Development Communication. When i went through my university’s new curriculum, I found that i was supposed to teach a class on Agricultural journalism. The title of my lesson is “Research in Agricultural Journalism and its application.” I tried to find out the references for this topic but couldn’t get any. I fortunately found your blog which gave me a real hope that i can get your help. I hope you will let me know about the topic i mentioned above or let email me the reference websites i can consult.
    Thank you very much. Oh by the way, the title of your blog article has a little mistake in the spelling of journalism, Hope you will correct it after you read this email.
