Bachelor of Agricultural and Resource Economics

University of New England UNE

Through the study of agricultural and resource economics students will gain an understanding of the key challenges and trade-offs confronting business, government and the community at large. They will develop the knowledge, skills and attributes required for high level problem solving and economic decision making across a diverse range of agricultural and natural resource issues such as food safety and security, natural resource depletion, climate change, sustainability and increasing globalisation and integration of agricultural and food networks. This degree is taught with a global perspective to ensure students understand the current challenging issues across the economic, environmental, social and political environments. Students will also develop an understanding of social responsibility in relation to agricultural and business practices, and an appreciation of the importance of the environment and sustainability. The degree gives students the flexibility to choose between a coursework only option and an embedded Honours program in which a supervised program of reading and research involving the preparation of a dissertation that reports on a particular investigation of an area of economic enquiry is undertaken. Opportunities also exist to undertake practical work experience and to participate in overseas study tours and study exchange programs that value add to the degree.
