Master of Science in Agriculture (Ref.#052)

Master of Science in Agriculture (Ref.#052)

I received my master's degree in Agriculture from Western Kentucky University. The program has an interdisciplinary emphasis, combining formal course work in experimental design, genetics, and applied economics with cooperative education experiences and research bridging the various disciplines of agriculture and life sciences. This degree provided a firm foundation for economic and policy analysis related to food, agriculture, and life sciences.
