Study programme objectives

Environmental economy study program aims to elaborate environmental issues, such as pollution, climate change and protection of biodiversity, from aspect of economy, develop understanding of environment and resources, define conceptual basics and practical tools for analysis, quantification and interpretation of state, protection and development indicators.   

Environmental economy has developed from ten years of effort to put together specific knowledge in the field of Integral management of natural resources, from the point of view of green economy, economy of resources, natural economy, circular economy, that are crucial part of holistic and interdisciplinary understanding of environmental phenomena.

Starting new undergraduate study program is a logical consequence of the results already achieved in this area, in order to complement the existing vertical of existing master program. The goal is to provide students with fundamental knowledge in the science of environmental protection, but also with interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary knowledge, that includes specific knowledge of environmental economics.

Type of studies and the outcome of the learning process

Graduate Analyst of environmental economy acquires the ability to understand underlying causes of contemporary environmental problems, but also to design policies in order to solve them. Ability to understand the instruments and tools (environmental and economic) for the environmental protection is located in the plane of the phenomenology of ecological restorations, which are neither new charges,  nor taxes, but the substitution for extra profit, from which mitigate the consequences of external costs and make up for environmental damage.

What makes this program unique is that it combines corresponding knowledge in fundamental / Natural Sciences and Mathematics with solid fundamentals and knowledge in key areas of the economy. Besides learning basics of macroeconomics and microeconomics, students get special knowledge about environmental pollution, non-renewable and renewable resources and the necessary interactions between globalization and environmental degradation. In addition to these qualitative outcomes, study program emphasizes the importance of quantitative skills needed for understanding and carring out empirical work in economics, with special emphasis on the assessment and evaluation of monetary resources, but also the assessment and monetary evaluation of environmental damage.

Professional, academic and scientific title

After completing four-year studies and obtaining 240 ECTS student receive professional title – Graduate Analyst of Environmental Economy.
