The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics offers two minors: one for non-ARE students only and one open to all students. Both minors are useful additions to any business-oriented student at NC State who may want to venture into the food and agriculture sectors. Each minor is designed to set students up for success with real-world skills and knowledge.

Students should review the requirements and add the minor prior to their final semester. Please reach out to Colleen Hembree with questions about the Agricultural Business Management and the Agricultural Entrepreneurship minors.

Students can now submit applications to add a minor via MyPack Portal. To determine course requirements and eligibility for the minors listed below prior to adding it to their degree program, students may go to the Degree Audit section of their account in the MyPack Portal and under the “What If” option select the ABM/Agricultural Entrepreneurship minor.
