Graduate Minor

The Graduate Minor in Agricultural Economics (GMAE) provides education and training in the application of economic principles to problems affecting rural households or communities. Students pursuing the minor will benefit from a broad and enriched perspective in the fundamentals of economic theory and methods of analysis. To receive the GMAE designation on their graduate degrees students must demonstrate proficiency with economic concepts and their application. Students will be expected to use this advanced knowledge in their research.

Requirements:
  • Students are required to complete 12 hours of graduate level course work in agricultural economics (6 hours must be at the 7000 level or above). Courses that satisfy requirements of the student's graduate program may also count towards the minor in agricultural economics.
  • A member of the agricultural economics faculty must be on the student's graduate committee.
  • The student must demonstrate the ability to apply economic principles to problems in research. A chapter or section of a thesis or dissertation can provide such a demonstration.
For more information see the Graduate Handbook , the Graduate Handbook Summary, and more information on the PhD program.
