The Department of Agricultural Economics in the Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will offer a Bachelor of Science degree program in financial planning beginning Fall 2023.This will be the first degree from Texas A&M University that focuses specifically on holistic personal financial planning, a rapidly growing career field.

“With trillions of dollars estimated to pass between the oldest three generations in the coming decade, the need for holistic financial planning has never been greater,” said Nathan Harness, Ph.D., an instructional professor and director of financial planning in the Department of Agricultural Economics.

The Texas A&M financial planning program got its start thanks in part to Bill Carter ‘69. Bill and his wife, Fran, created a sizable planned gift to support the program, and Bill continues to advocate for continued growth and recognition within the Texas A&M system.
