Earn your bachelor’s in environmental and natural resource economics online
The health and longevity of our global economy is inextricably linked to the conservation of the natural world. As public and private organizations continue investing in sustainable practices, demand for professionals with a blend of economic and natural resource management skills will grow.
This online undergraduate degree program will help you develop the analytical tools to assess, allocate, and manage natural resources and create policies to preserve them. Start building the knowledge to balance economic objectives with sustainable, environmentally conscious business strategies.
Learn to develop plans and policies that make an impact
Comprehensive economic analysis provides a strong basis to guide policies and business operations that directly and indirectly affect our environment. At its core, economic theory provides an excellent framework for understanding both environmental and natural resource issues, predicting the potential effects of governmental policies and regulations, and developing innovative solutions to pressing economic and environmental problems.
Unlike other programs that focus primarily on natural resource management and only touch on economics, this program focuses on evaluating the past, current, and future economic impacts of various policies at a local, regional, and global scale. After successfully completing this program of study, you will have a strong foundation in macroeconomics, microeconomics, finance, econometrics, natural resource policy, and agricultural policy.
Earn two degrees concurrently
To broaden your knowledge base and technical training, you can simultaneously complete a second major in Natural Resource Management or another specialized major offered through the Warner College of Natural Resources.
Study in a flexible, online format
This online program allows you to earn your bachelor's degree from a respected, regionally accredited public research university in Colorado without leaving your hometown. Balance your academic studies with your career, family, and personal obligations.
Although this program is entirely online, you will still have many opportunities to interact closely with both your instructors and peers. You will also have access to many of the same resources and services as CSU’s resident students.
