Students who choose an Agribusiness major with an emphasis area will take courses to fulfill the School of Agriculture core requirements and the Agribusiness core requirements.  In addition, each emphasis has specific requirements as outlined.

Choosing an emphasis within the Agribusiness major rather than choosing a minor allows students to take more courses that are Agribusiness focused, both within the emphasis and as electives.  Students who choose a minor in another department can still choose an area of emphasis to have more focus in the electives that they take.
