About

The Environmental and Natural Resource Economics program at the University of Rhode Island offers an opportunity to work on applied and theoretical issues in the area of natural resource economics, with an emphasis on coastal and marine resource development and management.

Overview

Applicants should have completed course work in microeconomics, macroeconomics, statistics, and basic calculus, and must have a minimum B average in undergraduate work. The department has considerable experience in working with students who do not have undergraduate majors in economics or resource economics. 

Career

In our experience, many who study resource economics for a M.S. degree in the Department of Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at the University of Rhode Island have taken undergraduate degrees in fields other than economics, agricultural economics, or resource economics. In recent years, we have had M.S. students with backgrounds in physics, biopsychology, biology, zoology, history, English, psychology, and engineering. Some of these students have come to our program after job experiences or public service which have convinced them of the importance of resource and environmental economics in public policy formation.
