School: University of Saskatchewan
Faculty: College of Agriculture and Bioresources
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Agricultural Economics
Description: Economics is the study of how societies use available resources to meet the needs of people. Agriculture represents the single largest use of the earth’s resources—a major driving force in the world’s economy. Agriculture is a modern, complex industry where products are being consumed, developed, financed, grown, marketed, processed, regulated, researched, taxed and transported. Environmental quality, food safety, management of biotechnology and globalization are important issues that agricultural economists study in a business context.

Some of the topics students will study include a supply chain perspective of science, technology, production practice, product handling, product marketing systems and uses for Saskatchewan-produced grain; natural resource use from the management and policy perspective; problems affecting Western Canadian agriculture; and farm and agricultural business operations management.
