The BS in Development Education is a result of the conversion of the existing Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Development major in Agricultural Extension that caters to the current needs of the employment market. Change in the degree title with corresponding new courses was done in consultation with prospective employers of graduates. Since BSDE is a non-thesis course the students have to undergo field practice (internship program) for a period of three months in selected government agencies and private firms.
