Program Overview

The Environmental and Resource Economics minor aims to provide students majoring in other disciplines with an understanding of environmental and resource economics, and their uses in personal, social, business and government decision-making. Students learn how to apply economic analyses in evaluating environmental and resource problems, identifying their causes and examining alternative solutions. The minor also offers courses that teach techniques useful for decision making by local and regional communities. Students also obtain skills in the management of agricultural and natural-resource business firms.
