M.S. in Environmental Economics
In this program you will explore and understand how economic relationships interact with private and public institutions in the use and management of our natural resources and environment. You will learn how to address issues involving renewable resources including food, forests, water, solar radiation, and wind, and resources in fixed supply including fossil fuels and land. These issues include resource conservation and sustainability, private and public land use planning and management, air and water pollution control, energy production and consumption, and maintaining ecosystems. Preparing a thesis in one of these areas will provide you with the ability and confidence to address complex environmental concerns.
