ECO 303 - Environmental and Ecological Economics (3 cr.)


This course is concerned with integrating the study and management of environmental services and economics. The course is primarily concerned with the removal of the conceptual and professional isolation that have led to long-term mutually destructive rather than reinforcing economic and environmental policies. The course considers the efficient and equitable use of society’s scarce environmental resources including air, water, land, biodiversity and ecosystem services. Topics can include environmental regulation, social welfare analysis, Pigovian taxes, tradable pollution permits, modeling of common property resources, use and non-use valuation techniques, economic effects of climate change, the debate of growth versus no-growth, and others.
