|Location:||Tucson, United States|
Students in the Agricultural and Resource Economics (AREC) Master of Science degree program at University of Arizona have a choice between a thesis option with Applied Economics and Policy Analysis (AEPA) and a non-thesis option with Applied Econometrics and Data Analytics (AEDA).
University of Arizona doesn’t accept applications under the general Agricultural and Resource Economics Master of Science program, one of the two options above must be decided at the time of application.
A broad spectrum of agricultural economics subject matter is presented, with emphasis in natural resources, international business, and agribusiness. The Master’s program provides training in the theory and methods of applied agricultural and resource economics.
Graduating students are qualified for positions in the private sector with agribusiness, financial, farm management, and consulting firms, and in state and federal government agencies. Some students choose to follow the master’s degree with enrollment in a Ph.D. program, either at the University of Arizona or elsewhere.
Many AREC graduates have excelled in premier doctoral programs throughout the United States. We also offer an Agricultural & Resource Economics minor for PhD seeking students. We have a strong and consistent history of Peace Corps Fellows in our Master’s program and we proudly invite all Returning Peace Corps Volunteers to apply for this graduate program.

“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?”
