The Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics offers four options within the agricultural business bachelor of science degree program.

A brief description of minimum course requirements for each of the four options in agricultural business is given below. In addition, faculty advisers will work with students to tailor a curriculum to individual interests and goals.

Applied agricultural economics courses are supplemented with marketing, management, finance and other courses from the College of Business and production-oriented courses from other departments in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. Farm and Ranch Management Option This curriculum is for students intending to become operators or professional managers of farms, ranches or feedlots. It is also well suited for students interested in the field of agricultural finance, or a minor in biological fields such as agroecology or range management.

International Agriculture Option This curriculum is for students who desire training related to international agricultural business, or with agricultural and economic problems of developing nations. International trade and relations, world food production, agricultural and economic geography, foreign language, economic development and comparative systems are emphasized in this program Livestock Business Management Option This curriculum is for students intending to work in any sector of the livestock industry, ranging from input suppliers, to ranches, feedlots, meat packing companies, marketing and sales agents, futures/commodities exchange groups, policy makers, and international trade organizations.
