The Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics program of University of Guelph trains future research and policy leaders. This training emphasizes the importance of policy relevant and issues oriented research, communicated with clarity, purpose and meaning.
We offer course-based (MFARE) and thesis-based (MSc) Master degrees and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.
The thesis-based (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree programs strive to develop appropriate analytical, methodological, and communication skills to enable students to analyze agriculture and resource problems effectively and explain their findings. The MSc requires both course work and a thesis. This program can be completed in approximately 5 to 6 semesters. The PhD program requires course work, successful completion of a qualifying exam and the defense of a research-based thesis with completion in approximately 12 semesters.
