Description of Environmental Economics & Management
The Environmental Economics and Management major prepares students for public and private positions in natural and environmental
resource analysis and management. EEM majors are trained to understand and appreciate the economic & non-economic aspects of
resource and environmental problems, including social, ecologic, physical, and legal considerations. EEM majors can serve effectively
as members of interdisciplinary teams involved in resource and environmental management, planning, and analysis. An EEM major is
designed for individuals who desire to "make a difference" when it comes to wise, efficient, and productive management of public and
private natural and environmental resources. The linkages between economic activity and natural and environmental resources will be
a major local, national, and global issue of concern in the coming decades. Natural resource and environmental problems create a
demand for individuals who can offer alternative solutions to these problems.
