The minor in environmental economics and law is designed to provide students with basic skills in economic and legal analysis, and to teach them how to apply those tools to environmental problems. Students will emerge from this minor with in-depth knowledge about issues related to environmental protection and natural resource management, and possibly a sustainable development or land-use planning. There are not prerequisites for the minor.
Enrollment in the environmental economics and law minor is not available to students enrolled in the environmental economics and policy concentration of the Department of ACE or in the human dimensions of the environment concentration of the major in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences major prior to Januray 2013.

An undergraduate minor is a coherent program of study requiring some depth in the subject, but not as extensive of a program as the major, and allow students to gain expertise in an area secondary to their major. Our campus has more than 100 undergraduate minors to choose from. Most minors entail a comprehensive study of the discipline, rather than focusing on a narrow subfield of study. In general, minors consist of at least 16 and no more than 21 hours of coursework.
