Administrative history

With roots in coursework offered in the University's former Department of Political Economy, the subject of rural economy was established in its own department under successive name changes: Agricultural Economics and Farm Management (1961), Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology (1969), Rural Economy (1975) and finally Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology (2011). The object of the Department of Rural Economy was described as follows: to study and teach about the relationship between the agriculture and forestry industries and the general economy and the effect of this relationship on the environment and rural people; that is, the economics of farming (PACCR, 1981). As of 2022, the Department of Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology offers degrees in Environmental and Resource Economics, Economics of Agriculture Food & Agribusiness, Environmental and Resource Sociology, and International Development.

Professors: [1960-1961?] A. Gordon Ball. Heads: 1962-1969 Travis W. Manning.

Chairs: 1969- 1974 Travis W. Manning; 1974-1978 Thomas Alfred Petersen; 1978-1987 Milburn L. Lerohl; 1987 William E. Phillips.
