What will I learn?

By combining two areas of study in the dual degree program, students will gain skills and understanding in commerce, along with the skills and knowledge provided by the Bachelor of Economics.

Natural Resources and Environment

With the growing awareness at the international, regional, national and local levels of the ecological and economic importance of our diverse natural resources, effective and efficient use of these assets is a significant social and political issue. This major provides the tools of economic analysis for application to problems associated with the allocation of renewable and non-renewable natural resources, including fish/marine; forests; agricultural and recreational land; river systems; local and global environments; energy and minerals.

Students who complete this specialisation will have gained the analytical abilities to apply to challenges facing business, government and the community at large and the understanding of the key issues and trade-offs we face in a world of increasing competition, globalisation and natural resource depletion.
