Overview

Our MSc Agricultural Economics course will help you to understand economic concepts and policies to promote world agricultural development
With an ever-increasing world population and growing pressure on the world’s finite resources, the analytical skills of agricultural economists are as relevant as ever. During this course, you will combine theory with applied material as you develop various skills in econometrics, cost–benefit analysis and modelling.

Class sizes vary by subject and module, but emphasis is always placed on good contact time with lecturers. Learning occurs across a variety of lectures, seminars, tutorials and field trips.
