M.S.- Applied Economics
A Master of Science degree in Applied Economics will prepare you to use economic and business concepts along with analytical tools to solve problems -- problems like those faced by agricultural marketing companies, natural resource agencies, farms, ranches, and rural communities. Or, the M.S. could be your start in the pursuit of a Ph.D.
Either way, the graduate program in Applied Economics at the University of Idaho has been designed to help you develop the analytical and decision making skills needed for management, production, marketing, and policy making careers in agriculture. Graduate training includes the areas of commercial agriculture, natural resources, and rural development economics. Also, an emphasis is put on training in international agricultural development and marketing.
The M.S. thesis option is offered as a stand-alone degree, or with emphasis areas, which may be selected in any of the following three areas: Agricultural Economics; Natural Resources; Agribusiness. Students may take a non-thesis option M. S. degree.
