Undergraduate Program

WE PREPARE LEADERS.

Become a scholar in your chosen field with a foundation that prepares you to solve global challenges that deal with the economics of agriculture and natural resources. 

We offer two degrees, six majors, and four minor options. 

  • Agribusiness Management and Entrepreneurship
  • Environmental Economics
  • Development and International Trade
  • Agricultural and Applied Economics

The program offers the opportunity to earn both a bachelor's and a master's in five years, instead of the usual six.  The last year can be 100% online. Learn more

The power of this degree goes beyond the classroom; It offers students a framework for understanding and engaging with the world. The program emphasizes the importance of life-long learning and making the world a better place. These are the key ingredients for success in one’s career and life.
