About

The Natural Resource and Environmental Economics degree program, offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, combines in-depth study of the natural sciences with economics, law, and other social sciences.

Overview

The program provides students with training in the analysis of the benefits and costs of using natural resources and the environment for a variety of purposes including recreation, agriculture, wildlife habitat, industry, logging, and mining. In addition, the program emphasizes the assessment of public policies regulating the use of natural resources and environmental amenities. 

At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln we offer a bachelor degree in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics. Students in this program work closely with faculty in both the agricultural economics department and the School of Natural Resources.

Increased public awareness of environmental issues, new environmental regulations, growing costs of compliance with these regulations, and significant penalties for violating them mean that the need for employees with training in environmental and natural resource economics is expanding rapidly.
