Environmental Economics (AREC)
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 academic and career options, MATH 140 and 141 are strongly recommended. Interested in a PhD in Environmental Econ? Consider the advice of Jason Wong, ENSP-Econ (2013), who is now enrolled at Columbia University's PhD program!
