Become an expert on the economics of delivering food and water to the world. You’ll study everything related to food production and use of our water resources, from seeds to sales, from farms to factories, from turf to transport to table. Graduates find work with private firms, government agencies, and nongovernmental agencies, or go on to graduate school.
Transform Commerce and Communities
For as long as humans have been around, we’ve needed to eat food and drink water to survive. Today we rely on crops, livestock, and water not only for our next meal, but to supply the raw materials we need to produce clothing, shelter, and so much more. As a student in the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences at The University of Arizona, you’ll study how to manage land, people, food, water and capital to meet the needs of a growing world population.
We offer two Bachelor of Science programs:
- Agribusiness Economics & Management
- Environmental and Water Resource Economics
You’ll learn how to coordinate the production of food and fiber, regulate the use of natural resources, start your own business, market agricultural products, sell raw materials, and manage businesses, large and small, in food, agriculture and beyond.
