Applied Economics and Management

Field Description

The M.S. and Ph.D. programs are research oriented, and each requires a thesis or dissertation. Students are normally expected to obtain the M.S. or equivalent degree before entering the Ph.D. program. The Ph.D. student must take at least one minor in another field, such as Economics. The Master of Professional Studies (Agriculture) is a terminal degree for persons with experience who want additional training pertinent to their profession.

If you are applying for the MPS program, your application will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please see the program website for more information on the admissions rounds.

Those interested in this field may also want to investigate the related fields listed under Economics in "Opportunities for Study" in the Graduate School Catalog.
