Information for Current and Prospective Students
The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics prepares
students to assume responsible positions in the management of the
world's natural and human resources. Private firms and government
agencies seek employees with excellent problem-solving and communication
skills. Students develop these skills through their studies in
agribusiness management, finance, economic theory, natural resource
economics, environmental regulation, quantitative techniques, and
economic development, both domestic and international.
You do not need a farm or ranch background to major in agricultural
and resource economics. In fact, most of our majors come from rural
towns and large metropolitan areas. Our students are interested
in managing the production of food and fiber, regulating the use
of natural resources, starting their own businesses, marketing
agricultural products, selling inputs to agricultural firms, and
managing large agribusiness corporations. Our programs are flexible
enough to meet the unique needs and interests of each student.
