Welcome to the home page of the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology at Auburn University. The Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology Department is located in Comer Hall.

We offer BS, MS, and MAg degrees in Rural Sociology and Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness, along with MBAA (Agribusiness) and MBAN (Natural Resources Management) degrees in conjunction with College of Business. We also offer the PhD degree in conjunction with the School of Forestry. At present, we have about 140 undergraduate students and 35 graduate students.

Our mission is to seek and transmit socio-economic knowledge to the citizens of Alabama and the world. We attempt to achieve that through our teaching, research and extension programs that work in conjunction with other departments in the College of Agriculture, industry, and beyond.
