Agricultural and Resource Economics (MS)

Program Overview The program in Agricultural and Resource Economics leads to the Master of Science degree and offers students the perspectives and skills necessary to understand and work in the agribusiness or government sectors of the economy. Also, a strong intermediate level of training is offered so that students may continue graduate work and obtain the PhD degree. The department has ready access to various state-of-the-art computing and library resources. AREC graduate students are encouraged to actively participate in the research activities of our faculty. A completed graduate thesis project is required for funded AREC graduate students. The department provides a generous financial aid package to qualified candidates. The application to this program requires this Supplemental Document. Since the initial courses start in the fall, we will consider spring applications only under very special circumstances.
