What will I learn?

Agricultural Economics brings together elements of mathematics, management and the social sciences as part of a wide-ranging educational experience. Learning from respected faculty, researchers and guest lecturers from the agri-food industry, students form an understanding of food production, public policy, trade opportunities and international food aid, among other topics.

Courses in economic theory provide a critical foundation of knowledge, while others focus on how to apply these theories to various issues on a local, national and global scale. You'll take courses that combine the worlds of science and business, exposing you to issues like trade, pricing and policy and giving you the decision-making skills needed for professional success.

The small number of students in each class presents a huge opportunity to learn, with plenty of personal attention and an emphasis on debate and discussion.
