The TERI University offers number of courses one of the course is M Sc (Economics).
The rapid structural economic changes in developed and developing countries in the second half of the 20th century have created increasing pressure on environmental and natural resources. Though the need to protect the environment is recognized by most of the societies, but how to achieve a balance between economic growth, social welfare and environmental health is widely debated.
Environmental and Resource Economics, which is a new and exciting branch of economics, integrates the discipline of economics with environmental sciences. It analyzes the conflict between production and consumption patterns of the societies and the limits imposed thereon by the environment.
M Sc Economics (with in specialization in Environmental and Resource Economics) programme will be intended to examine the application of economic theory to environmental and natural resource issues within an interdisciplinary setting. The programme will be especially targeted to students wishing to become professional environment and resource economists in governments, corporations, international organisations and for those who want to make further career in research and consultancy in environmental and resource economics. At the end of 2-year intensive training in environmental and resource economics our students are expected to have acquired a high degree of technical ability and a solid understanding of economic theory as it relates to the environmental and natural resources; they should be able to confidently conduct independent quantitative research.
