Agricultural Economics (MSc) - Master of Science in Agricultural Economics

   
Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Land and Food Systems
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Agricultural Economics
Description The Food and Resource Economics (FRE) Group offers both a research master's degree, the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Agricultural Economics, and a professional master's degree, the Master of Food and Resource Economics (M.F.R.E.). The M.Sc. is designed for careers where research is a main component, while the M.F.R.E. is designed for careers in industry or government. In both degrees, coursework provides students with rigorous training in applied economics and quantitative methods. In the M.Sc., students develop specialized research skills by working with faculty throughout UBC on important real-world issues. FRE faculty members have direct experience working in the food and resource sectors, both domestically and internationally in Europe and Asia, particularly with developing countries. Applied economics and quantitative methods are central parts of the program, but the focus includes important issues in resource economics, commodity markets, health and food, environment, international agriculture, and related policy questions.
