The Food and Resource Economics (FRE) Program (formerly Agricultural Economics) uses rigorous tools of economic and empirical analysis to examine applied problems in the general area of natural resource and environmental economics (e.g., carbon taxes, conservation and biodiversity, fisheries), commodity markets and trade and food marketing. The FRE Program actively collaborates with other economists at UBC (and also in proximate universities) through a Centre for Food, Resource and Environmental Economics. The Centre facilitates access to a world class and diversified network of expertise in agricultural and environmental economics for our students and researchers. The Program offers a BSc. in Food and Resource Economics, a professional Masters program in Food and Resource Economics, and supports several research MSc. and Ph.D. students through the Integrated Studies in Land and Food Systems graduate degree.
