Environmental Economics and Policy

Agricultural and Resource Economics (AREC)
2200 Symons Hall

This minor provides students with economic knowledge to apply to analysis and understanding of environmental and resource policies. AREC382 and the 400-level courses are a truncated version of the upper-level course requirements of the AREC major. These courses focus particularly on economic analysis relevant to environmental policy analysis. AREC332 is a course intended primarily for non-AREC majors. AREC240 is an introductory course giving students an overview of the subject. AREC382 and AREC455 are required courses in the ENSP environmental economics concentration; AREC445 is on a list of restricted electives in that concentration. AREC240 and AREC332 can be used to meet ENSP core requirements for all ENSP concentrations.
