About

The Agricultural and Resource Economics (Minor) program from the University of Arizona is for students pursuing a PhD at the University of Arizona. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The AREC Department offers a program leading to the Master of Science degree with a major in Agricultural & Resource Economics. A broad spectrum of agricultural economics subject matter is presented, with emphasis in natural resources, international business, and agribusiness. The Master's program provides training in the theory and methods of applied agricultural and resource economics. Graduating students are qualified for positions in the private sector with agribusiness, financial, farm management, and consulting firms, and in state and federal government agencies. Some students choose to follow the master's degree with enrollment in a Ph.D. program, either at the University of Arizona or elsewhere. Many AREC graduates have excelled in premier doctoral programs throughout the United States. We also offer an Agricultural & Resource Economics minor for PhD seeking students.  We have a strong and consistent history of Peace Corps Fellows in our Master's program and we proudly invite all Returning Peace Corps Volunteers to apply for this graduate program.
