Are you intrigued by practical and relevant subjects? Do you have a passion for travel, the environment, economics, or the business of food? Are you looking for a way to let your passion be your purpose? If this sounds like you, then a minor in agricultural business (AGBS-M) or international economic development (INDV-M) might be a perfect fit for you!

Students majoring in other disciplines at the University of Arkansas have the option of completing either of these two minors. These programs are particularly appropriate for students interested in subjects related to agriculture, economics, human and environmental sciences, natural resources, and sustainability, as well as marketing, management and finance. A concentration of courses in environmental economics might also be of interest to students in biological or environmental science disciplines.

Depending on the minor selected, U of A core requirements of microeconomics and macroeconomics provide insight into the agricultural field by venturing into areas such as marketing, management, and entrepreneurship. Controlled electives also provide variety, delving into law and mathematics, in addition to possible study abroad experiences, which can further hone your specific interests. 

A student planning to pursue a minor in agricultural business or international economic development should contact their academic adviser to see how the credits might work within their degree program. For further clarification, students can contact the Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Office if appropriate. Minors should be declared in the Dean's Office of the student's current major.

The Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Department can be reached at (479) 575-2256 or 217 Agriculture Building.
