Agricultural Economics (B.S.) - Quantitative Option

The agricultural economics program balances the theoretical and practical applications of agricultural economics to give students the best grasp on emerging issues facing professionals in food and agriculture today. Students earn a BS in agriculture with a major in agricultural economics.

The requirements for the first two years are virtually the same for all options in agricultural economics. Exceptions to those requirements are noted in the discussion of the farm management, specialty option in pre-law, specialty option in pre-vet, and specialty option in natural resources and environmental sciences, and quantitative option.

This program allows students to pursue mathematics and statistics along with the agricultural economics curriculum. With these advanced quantitative skills students will be well prepared for MS and PhD studies in agricultural economics and will have excellent opportunities in future employment, especially as an economic analyst or consultant.
