The B.S. degree may be awarded at any time following the completion of the undergraduate degree requirements. Alternatively, the B.S. and M.S. degrees may be awarded concurrently. Students in the concurrent program must complete all undergraduate requirements with the exception that up to 9 credit hours of AGEC classes taken for graduate credit can count toward the undergraduate degree. Those graduate credits can only be used as unrestricted electives in the undergraduate degree.

The Agricultural Economics program seeks to achieve excellence in teaching, research, and Extension through the development of the individual student. The core curriculum is deliberately broad in order to build a framework of fundamental information so that new findings and concepts can be assimilated as they arise in the rapidly changing field of agricultural economics. In addition, the programs are designed to provide graduate students a core body of common knowledge through a number of required courses and limited electives.

The Department of Agricultural Economics financially supports graduate study and development in numerous ways. Students enrolled in the M.S. and Ph.D. programs are eligible for graduate research, teaching, and extension assistantships. Departmental faculty regularly secure research and extension grants from federal agencies, state agencies, commodity commissions, research foundations, and private industry.

In addition, the Department routinely supports many teaching and research assistantships. The Department has a successful record of securing USDA National Needs Fellowships and other graduate student fellowships and scholarships. Graduate assistantships are usually on a fivetenths basis. Stipends vary depending upon time worked and level of graduate education. Graduate assistants and instructors are regarded as Kansas residents for enrollment fee purposes.
