History of the School of Economic Sciences

The School of Economic Sciences (SES) was formed, in 2004, by merging the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics from the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS) and the Department of Economics from the College of Business and Economics. Initially SES was located across both colleges, but moved entirely into CAHNRS in 2006. The School of Economic Sciences offers programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Economic Sciences with options in Agricultural Economics; Business Economics; International Economics and Development; Economics, Policy and Law; Environmental and Resource Economics; Financial Markets; and Quantitative Economics. The School of Economic Sciences also offers minors in these options. Graduate degrees offered include the Master of Science in Economics, Master of Applied Economics, Doctor of Philosophy in Economics, and Doctor of Philosophy in Agricultural Economics. The School also advises the Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Food Systems, the Agricultural and Food Business Economics major.
