Department of Applied Economics

Visit Organization Website

The Department of Applied Economics (AEC) provides research, education, and outreach to illuminate decision-making and understand its impacts on the environment, agriculture, and society. 

Our goal is to create new knowledge founded in applied economic theory and rigorous quantitative analysis that can inform a wide range of choices made by producers, consumers, and policymakers. 

We aim to arm students with analytical skills and quantitative tools that will enable them to be leaders in both private and public sectors, and to provide information to support community and business vitality, local decision-making, and policy design in Oregon and beyond.

We specialize in natural resource and environmental economics, international trade and development, rural economics, agricultural marketing, and food systems.
