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. Interested in a PhD in Environmental Econ? Consider the advice of Jason Wong, ENSP-Econ (2013), who recently finished Columbia University's PhD program!
This concentration is sponsored by the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics within the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
