Business is everywhere.

With opportunities like education abroad, unique research projects, the Agribusiness Club, monthly corporate visits and more, you’ll find a program that’s committed to helping students push their potential. We grow careers Faculties in Agricultural Economics believe in applied teaching and learning, hence the aforementioned focus on experiential education. With a degree in Agricultural Economics, you’ll be prepared for positions at the crossroads of agriculture, commerce, public policy and more. In fact, you’ll be following in footsteps of recent Agricultural Economics alumni who have secured positions such as: Economist at Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center in Hawaii Population Health Consultant for Humana in Louisville, KY Market Research Analyst for Alltech in Nicholasville, KY Director of the Kentucky Center for Agriculture and Rural Development Seed and Precision Administrator at Agri-Chem, LLC in Hopkinsville, KY Policy Officer at the European Centre for Development Policy Management in the Netherlands What you'll study Agricultural Economics is much more than farm business. You’ll study the entire “farm-to-fork” food system, environmental and natural resource issues, local and international economic development, and fulfill an experiential education requirement (i.e. structured internship, independent research, entrepreneurial activity or education abroad program).
