Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources

Compared to the base major, this concentration requires courses in two of three areas of law (agricultural, business, environmental) and two of three areas of policy (commodity, conservation, and food). Two additional courses related to law and/or policy are also required from a list of directed electives. This concentration would be appropriate for students pointing toward law school or a graduate program in public administration or public policy. Students seeking to work for a government agency or and industry organization would also benefit greatly from pursuing this concentration.
