Agricultural and Applied Economics at Texas Tech University offers both thesis and non-thesis options. Both options are also available under the Accelerated Bachelor's-to-Master's degree programs.


Agricultural and Applied Economics at Texas Tech University provides training in economic theory and methods of analysis, with an emphasis on addressing applied economic problems. Students who select the thesis option are expected to demonstrate competency as economic analysts by completing a thesis, which is a work of original research. The non-thesis option requires more coursework than the thesis option. Considerable flexibility is incorporated into the non-thesis option so that the student can focus elective courses in an area of concentration of their choosing.\
