Master’s Programs in Agricultural Economics: Situation and Analysis

While interest in agricultural graduate programs increases throughout the nation, there is a lack of comprehensive information characterizing Master’s programs in agricultural economics. This study examines Master’s programs in agricultural economics (or equivalent, including resource economics, applied economics, and agribusiness) at U.S. land grant universities and categorizes commonalities, differences, strengths and positive aspects. The research identified a common core structure among the existing agricultural economics Master’s programs, as well as differentiating characteristics contributing to the individuality and viability of each program.
