Our department offers graduate programs leading to a
- Master of Science in Agricultural and Applied Economics
- Dual Master of Science and Doctor of Jurisprudence (in cooperation with the Texas Tech University Law School)
- Master of Agribusiness
- Doctor of Philosophy in Agricultural and Applied Economics
The Master of Science and the Master of Agribusiness degree programs are also integrated into Accelerated Bachelor's-to-Master's programs. The accelerated programs allow students to pursue both the undergraduate and graduate degree at the same time. Students in accelerated programs can earn six hours of graduate credit that will count toward both their undergraduate and graduate degrees. The department also participates in an M.B.A. program offered by the Rawls College of Business with concentration in Agricultural Business Management.
Graduate programs in Agricultural and Applied Economics seek to satisfy the following objectives:
- Provide an in-depth education in economic theory and methods of analysis.
- Provide experience in applying the theory and analytical methods to contemporary problems.
Therefore, the study of economic theory, economic and agricultural institutions, and quantitative and other research methods is emphasized in our graduate programs. We place heavy emphasis on use of theory and quantitative techniques in addressing applied problems. Graduates of our program have a strong record of performance in business, academics, and government.
