ECO 315 Environmental and Natural Resource Economics

Fall even-numbered years/Summer

The overall objective of the course is to help students see how natural resource, environmental and ecological economics approaches can be used to work at solving problems related to the natural resource system, especially directed at achieving sustainability.  Students will learn the economic way of framing and making sense of an issue. This will help students entering the workforce, or developing their own businesses, and as citizens, to better understand and contribute to the conversation about issues like energy, water, biodiversity, fish and wildlife, land use, global climate change, and especially about long term sustainability and the eco-approach to business and industry. Prerequisite: ECO 200  or ECO 201
