Graduate Minor Program
Graduate Minor in Applied Economics
Who is the Graduate Minor for:
This program is for non-economics students who want a deeper understanding of economic decision-making. This can include graduate students in:
- Applied Biological Sciences
- Applied Ecological Sciences
- Applied Physical Sciences
- Family and Consumer Sciences
- Healthcare Fields
- International Studies
- Environment and Natural Resources
Why Consider a Graduate Minor:
- Allows you to focus electives in an area of study that gives you a foundation in that second discipline
- Appears on the transcript and diploma
- Most real world policy issues are multi-disciplinary in nature, and
- Gives you a deeper understanding of the multi-disciplinary nature of applied research
Students take their choice of one basic theory course, Firm Behavior and Production Economics (AGEC 5310) or Consumer Behavior and Price Analysis (AGEC 5740), and a quantitative methods course: Quantitative Methods AGEC 5320 or Intermediate Econometric Theory AGEC 5230.
They then take one additional graduate course in Agricultural and Applied Economics or Economics and finish with a public seminar course where the student presents results to the broader University.
If the major already requires a public presentation that presentation can be substituted for the minor presentation.
Students are admitted into the Minor with appropriate undergraduate prerequisites: Intermediate Microeconomics, statistics, and one semester of calculus.
After acceptance into a graduate major send a letter of interest and fill out the application for the graduate minor program in Agricultural and Applied Economics.
For students already enrolled please fill out a change of major form with the Graduate School indicating the addition of the minor.
