Environmental and Resource Economics Major B.S.
What is environmental resource economics?
The environmental and resource economics degree program uses applied economic theory to study problems that impact land use, water, agriculture, forestry, fisheries and local communities. Students concentrate in one of the following areas: environmental and natural resource economics, agricultural economics, community economics or public resource policy. This major is well-suited to students who are interested in determining how best to conserve natural resources and protect the environment and want to understand how to evaluate competing interests and risks.
