The Agricultural and Resource Economics (Minor) program from University of Arizona requires 4 courses of 12 graduate level units, with 2 courses being core courses and two courses being specialty courses.

Students design their master’s program
After taking the core course requirements, graduate students choose their elective courses, thesis topic, and thesis advisor. They propose their own plan of study appropriate to their individual needs as approved by their thesis advisor. There is ample flexibility for students to choose elective graduate course offerings from within and from outside the Department.
The faculty place substantial emphasis on involvement of students in research efforts. Because of the close ties between teaching and extension faculty and the diversity of agricultural and natural resource issues, the Department can offer students wide-ranging opportunities for field research and exposure to “real world” problems.
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
