Information

The Environmental Policy and Economics concentration in the Natural Resources and Environmental Science major is designed to combine the science background provided by the NRES core with the study of human aspects of the environment. Students will examine economic implications, development of policy, environmental regulations, the politics of "going green" and social interactions. Graduates in this concentration will find employment in governmental agencies such as Indiana Department of Environmental Management, United States Department of Agriculture, and in the private sector as experts in environmental compliance.
