Environmental Economics and Management

College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences



The Environmental Economics and Management (EEM) major at the University of Georgia is designed for students who want to make a difference when it comes to wise, efficient, and productive management of public and private natural and environmental resources.

The curriculum addresses critical environmental issues from a business and scientific perspective.  Students are trained to understand and appreciate the non-economic aspects of resource and environmental problems, including social, ecological, physical, and legal considerations, all while serving as members of interdisciplinary teams involved in resource and environmental management, planning, and analysis.

EEM career opportunities are available in multiple public and private institutions in natural and environmental resource analysis and management.  The major also prepares graduates for further study in the fields of agricultural and environmental economics, natural resource economics, and law.
