MSc Environmental and Natural Resource Economics

Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham

Climate change, deforestation and unsustainable use of resources are all issues at the top of the environmental agenda. An understanding of the interactions between the environment and economics is essential for developing appropriate policies to tackle global issues in the long term.

Environmental and natural resource economists deal every day with the most challenging problems facing mankind: global climatic change, environmental pollution, deforestation, biodiversity loss, water scarcity and food poverty, to name but a few.

The Environmental and Natural Resource Economics MSc programme is unique in that it combines a solid foundation in key areas of economics, with specialized field courses.

Students receive a thorough grounding in macroeconomics, microeconomics and econometrics, alongside an in-depth knowledge of the economics and policy of environmental pollution, renewable and non-renewable resource use, as well as the interaction between globalization and environmental degradation.

In addition, we emphasise the development of the quantitative skills necessary to understand and perform empirical work in economics, with particular attention to the valuation of environmental goods in monetary terms.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree (2:1 or higher) or equivalent in Economics or a related subject. You are expected to have received a good training in economics, to at least intermediate level, and to have a basic knowledge of calculus and statistics.

We can also consider students with a degree in another discipline (preferably within the social sciences) where study included modules on microeconomics, mathematics and statistics. We prefer that you have also studied macroeconomics and econometrics.

We accept a range of qualifications from different countries.
