Welcome to the Agricultural Economics website. This year we are celebrating 100 years as a department. In 1913, under the direction of T.J. Brooks, the Department of Markets and Rural Economics was established at Mississippi State. 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
. You will find out much more about the department as you explore this website. Thank you for visiting our site and please contact us if you have any questions.
