Course summary

This course combines these two complementary fields, providing you with rigorous economics training as well as environmental social science learning. Increasingly, employers in environmental issues require graduates with economics training to understand and tackle environmental issues. This is a major/minor programme, with around 75 per cent of this programme in environment, and the remaining 25 per cent in economics.

Many staff members from the Department are directly engaged with policy debates, sitting on government panels or being contracted to do analysis for different policy issues. You’ll learn not just academic theory, but why policies matter and why they’re relevant. You will acquire a broad range of social scientific skills and knowledge with which to tackle and understand environmental problems.

Recent graduates have gone on to work in all areas of environmental policy and economics at the local, national and international level, whether in the public sector for government departments and agencies, in the private sector for industry and environmental/management consultancies, or in the NGO sector for pressure groups and think tanks. A number of recent graduates have also gone on to further study at graduate level.
