Description: The environmental economics and management (EEM) 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 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.
