Environmental Economics and Policy Major [ALES]

Graduates choosing this major develop skills in the economic analysis of environmental problems and the policy process associated with environmental issues. The interaction among economic, social, political, and legal elements of environmental problems is addressed. The Environmental Economics and Policy major builds on the Environmental and Conservation Sciences Core with a block of courses intended to provide the background for economic, social, and legal approaches to environmental problems and to build quantitative and analytical skills. Extensions into advanced economic theory, political theory, social theory, and other policy sciences are selected from groups of Approved Program Electives.

Graduates are prepared for careers in government and private industry in environmental economic analysis, policy analysis, and other related areas.
