Our MSc Agricultural Economics course will help you to understand economic concepts and policies to promote world agricultural development.
The University of Reading is the highest-ranking UK University for Agriculture and Forestry and is ranked 9th in the world (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020- Agriculture & Forestry.) We are the only UK University in the top 50.
With an ever-increasing world population and growing pressure on the world’s finite resources, the analytical skills of agricultural economists are as relevant as ever.
