Food and Agricultural Business Major, BS in Agricultural and Resource Economics – Agricultural Production and Technology Management Concentration


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Herbert College of Agriculture

Compared to the base major, this concentration requires courses within the department in futures/options markets and agricultural commodity policy, along with a capstone course in agricultural production and technology management. Outside the department, courses in animal science and plant science are required, along with an additional six hours of coursework in areas related to production agriculture. This concentration would be appropriate for students who expect to be involved in management of a farm or agricultural production facility and for students who are pointing toward a career in the farm input supply sector.

uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students.
