A degree in Environmental Water Resource and Economics (EWRE) prepares students to assume responsible positions in the management of the world's natural and human resources. Students develop skills through their studies in agribusiness management, finance, economic theory, natural resource economics, environmental regulation, quantitative techniques, and economic development, both domestic and international. This major is flexible so that students choose coursework from a variety of departments across campus depending on their area of focus. In the Environmental & Water Resource Economics major you will: receive training in environmental and natural resource economics and quantitative methods as well as integrate your studies with science, politics, law, information technology, project management, marketing, and communications. Students in this major will take four core classes and then design their own degree drawing from courses in three areas of specialization: Environmental and Water Sciences, Management and Policy, or Quantitative Methods.
