Studying resource economics helps give students the foundation to develop creative solutions to complex problems around issues affecting the environment, food supply, and access to natural resources.

This seven-course minor is an excellent supplement to an undergraduate degree program in a related field, such as political science, sustainable community development, landscape architecture, and many others.

You can select the general Resource Economics minor, or choose to specialize in a focus area: environmental and natural resources, behavioral/experimental, quantitative, managerial (industrial organization) or health economics.
