University Park, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (MN EC)

PROFESSOR ADAM Z. ROSE, Head of the Department

This program combines training in economics, physical sciences, management sciences, and quantitative methods, with a core of courses centering on the energy, environmental, mineral and material industries. The field helps prepare students for careers in industry, government, financial institutions, consulting firms, or international organizations. The curriculum also provides a strong base for further graduate study in business, economics, law, social sciences, and environmental sciences.

The Energy, Environmental, and Mineral Economics curriculum allows the student to pursue a special interest appropriate to his or her career objectives. The core courses program covers minerals in the environment, energy and environmental policy, materials markets, risk management, finance, and applications of statistical techniques to two options: (1) Nonrenewable Resource and Environmental Economics and (2) Minerals and Energy Business.

For the B.S. degree in Energy, Environmental, and Mineral Economics, a minimum of 120 credits is required.
