The Department of Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness at the Fayetteville Campus of the University of Arkansas offers graduate programs of study leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Agricultural Economics. Advanced study in Agricultural Economics and Agricultural Business provides students with state of the art knowledge of theory, methods and application in the field. The student becomes better prepared for positions in the dynamic environment of contemporary agribusiness and production agriculture. Advanced degree program options include:
Graduate study provides broad, but coordinated, training in either thesis or non-thesis concentrations of study. Such study affords opportunities for bringing together technical information from subject-matter areas both within and outside agriculture for deriving useful recommendations for decision-making at all levels of agribusiness.
Students receive personal attention and guidance in developing and carrying out their graduate program. These programs may be tailored for either a terminal Master's degree with a focus on agribusiness, or as a preparation for additional study leading to the Ph.D. degree.
