(Brief description)

Skills and Career Applications

(Insert comments on the intent and career applications of this class. Comments/Quotes from Nicholas Alumni are especially valued.)

Registration Advice

(Insert comments here on how prospective students should approach registration for this class, e.g. hard to get into; sign up early; permission numbers; don't take if you already have heavy load)

  • The course is designed so that you do not require ENV 270 or other economics courses as a prerequisite.  Of course, the materials from 270 will help with Forest Econ, and conversely, taking Forest Econ is a good way to solidify and review core environmental economics concepts.
  • Workload is appropriate -- usually it consists of pre-class paper readings, a series of computation assignments, and a term paper.

Student Opinions

(This space is intended to compile general comments from past students on the course. It will be judiciously moderated for extreme and unprofessional comments, but otherwise, it is open to a broad range of student feedback.)

  • The instructor is very receptive to student suggestions and academic interests.  The course design takes past student suggestions into account.  Also, the instructor makes an effort to relate lecture materials to the research interests and past work experience of students in the class (which are asked and discussed at the beginning of the term).

The Instructor's Take...

(This space is exclusively for the instructor to broadly comment on his or her course, and respond to commonly received feedback, explain methods and approaches, and encourage student registration. Instructors: Please limit to 300 words, or link to a wiki page of your own creation to explain in detail.)
