Agricultural and Resource Economics (M.S.)

Program Overview

The Master of Science (M.S.) program in Agricultural and Resource Economics provides students with the training to succeed in a competitive PhD program, while offering the perspectives and skills necessary to work for an agribusiness firm or government agency. Qualified students who are admitted to the M.S. program receive a generous financial compensation package and have access to the resources necessary to conduct high-quality research. A thesis project is required for graduation; however, this is completed under the advisement and supervision of exceptional faculty. The deadline to be considered for funding is February 1, but applications after the deadline will be accepted under special circumstances.
