This minor provides students with economic knowledge to apply to analysis and understanding of environmental and resource policies. AREC 382 and the 400 level courses are a truncated version of the upper-level course requirements of the AREC major. These courses focus particularly on economic analysis relevant to environmental policy analysis. AREC 332 is a course intended primarily for non-AREC majors. AREC 240 is an introductory course giving students an overview of the subject. AREC 382 and AREC 455 are required courses in the ENSP environmental economics concentration; AREC 445 is on a list of restricted electives in that concentration.
