Environmental Economics

Economics is the study of the allocation of scarce resources. Economics is not simply about profits or money. It applies anywhere constraints are faced, so that choices may be made. Economists study how incentives affect people's behavior. Environmental and natural resource economics is the application of the principles of economics to the study of how environmental and natural resources are developed and managed. To enhance career options in economic analysis, MATH 140 is strongly recommended. For more information, please visit Environmental Science and Policy program.
