Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology Minor
Students can design a plan of study to complement their major. An Animal Sciences student who is returning to the farm or an Agronomy major going into agricultural extension, for example, could design a program in farm management and rural leadership. Agricultural Systems Management or Horticulture students might increase their employment opportunities by completing a program in business management. Other students could emphasize resource economics or community and rural development.
Students are required to complete a minimum of 18 credits of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology courses chosen with the consent of their minor program adviser. At least 6 of these credits must be at the 400 level.
