    Agricultural economics applies economic principles to decisions about the use of private and public resources. The global economy creates economic opportunities for the agricultural business industry.  Various options provide specialization in management, marketing, finance, and farming and ranching. 

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Agricultural Economics.
