MSc Economics (Environmental Economics)

Course Description

This course aims to provide a balanced and rigorous training in modern theories and techniques in environmental economics at the postgraduate level.

It provides training for those aiming to be environmental economists in national and international public (Defra, FSA, Environment Agency, OECD, etc) and private institutions including environmental consultancies. The course also serves as a sound foundation from which to embark on a PhD Programme in environmental economics.

Students are introduced to key concepts, ideas, tools and techniques via core and optional course units, and have the opportunity to combine and develop their skills in writing a dissertation.

By the end of the course, you should be able to critically engage with the current theory and practice in environmental economics. You will be able to develop approaches and models of your own, based on the environmental problem at hand, from which to derive original results and offer a critique of existing theories and practice.

The bulk of the teaching and supervision for students on this Programme is done by members of the Environmental & Resource Economics group.

If you would like to speak informally about the Programme then please contact the Course Director, Dan Rigby: / 44 (0)161 275 4808
