Program Information

The graduate program of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Oklahoma State University stresses development of superior professional competence suited to the demands of the modern business, academic, government, and research environments. Advanced degree programs include:

Advanced courses concentrate on economic analysis applied to problems of production, distribution, and consumption of agricultural products. Problems of agricultural policy, natural resource use, and rural area development and planning are also important topics. The faculty gives direction and individual guidance to student research in marketing, production, management of agricultural enterprises, price analysis, land and water use and development, rural development and planning, agricultural finance, international trade, farm appraisal, and agricultural policy.

The Department of Agricultural Economics awards a number research and teaching assistantships each year. Stipends for these assistantships are reviewed annually and adjusted as needed. Stipend rates are competitive with those of other outstanding agricultural economics departments. For students on fellowship or assistantship, out-of-state tuition is waived. In-state tuition waivers are sometimes available on a case-by-case basis.
