Welcome to the Agricultural Economics website. As we begin the year in 2014, we continue to celebrate our 100th year as a department. In 1913, under the direction of T.J. Brooks, the Department of Markets and Rural Economics was established and from the very beginning, we have been educating students to apply their economic training to address challenges and opportunities. Along the way, we incorporated research and outreach/extension into our mission. Today, we provide undergraduate programs in Agribusiness
and Environmental Economics and Management
and graduate programs in Agricultural Economics
and Agribusiness Management
. On March 20, 2014, Dr. Richard Carson, an environmental economist at the University of California at San Diego and alumnus of Mississippi State, will deliver the Centennial Lecture at 1:30 p.m. in the Taylor Auditorium, McCool building here on campus. Thank you for visiting our site.
