Environmental and Resources Economics

A field in environmental and resource economics allows a Ph.D. candidate to develop expertise in the application of economics to problems of environmental and natural resource use and policy. Boundaries of the field are sufficiently flexible to enable the student to achieve depth in theory, analytical techniques or subject matter. In completing the requirements of the field, a student is expected to acquire an understanding of the historical and institutional components of environmental and resource economics, a working knowledge of contemporary natural resource and environmental policy, and an expertise in the elements of economic theory that are particularly relevant to natural resource and environmental issues.
