The Story of Agriculture Podcast: Episode 14 with Dr. Annie Specht, assistant professor of agricultural communications at Ohio State University.
How do you become a professor? For Dr. Annie Specht it started when she was a little girl. Her family raised registered cattle, and at that time you didn't just send in a photograph of their markings, you drew them out on the registration application. This became one of Annie's jobs on the farm and led to a love for drawing, design and eventually other aspects of communication. A degree in agricultural communication fed her love of design and agriculture but also exposed her to research and science side of the field.
Join us as Dr. Specht shares her journey to becoming an assistant professor in agricultural communication.
Other topics discussed include:
- The difference in undergraduate and graduate programs
- Teaching and advising students
