Masters degrees in Agricultural Economics examine the commercial context for modern farming and agribusiness, together with their wider impact on human society. Courses may specialise in a range of topics, from food production and trade to international relations and development.
Most programmes in this subject area are taught MSc degrees. Research qualifications (such as the MRes) are also offered.
These courses exist at the intersection of two important disciplines. Agricultural activity provides the raw materials that enable both local development and wider international trade. Economics measures the impact of this activity – and attempts to forecast it.
As such, a Masters in Agricultural Economics can lead to a range of opportunities. You’ll have the opportunity to develop advances numerical skills in mathematical modelling and Econometrics, as well as expertise in analysing (or formulating) economic or agricultural policy.
Potential employers include agribusiness companies and similar commercial organisations. More diverse careers are also available in fields such as market research, international development or areas of public policy related to agriculture and food production.
