California State University, Stanislaus
Agricultural Studies B.A. Concentration in Agricultural Economics
The Bachelor of Arts in Agricultural Studies is a multidisciplinary program that blends the contributions of a number of academic departments through upper division core courses and four concentrations: Agricultural Biology, Agricultural Business / Economics, Permaculture, and a special concentration. The program encourages students to explore diverse approaches to agricultural production, distribution, and management in evolving economic and environmental settings. Experiential learning and applied research opportunities are offered through these concentrations.
The major fosters sustainable relationships with area community colleges through the implementation of a "2+2" program design. Individuals who have an A.S. degree or equivalent lower-division course work in Agriculture, Agricultural Science, Agricultural Economics and closely related fields, and who complete the designated lower-division prerequisite courses, may participate in the program. Individuals currently employed will be admitted contingent on their completion of course requirements.
The Agricultural Studies concentration in Applied Economics gives students the opportunity to combine community college coursework with courses at CSU Stanislaus to obtain a B.A. degree. Students take upper division courses that build on specific knowledge and skills gained at the community college. Courses in the concentration expose students to economic concepts such as resource allocation at the firm and macro levels, and business concepts such as management, finance, sales, and marketing. Students in the program will gain important statistical skills including forecasting and knowledge about international trade. The program is flexible in that students develop an individual study/internship in a related field for university credit.
