Land Economy

Main page content

Land Economy at Cambridge offers a challenging programme which provides a stimulating analysis of our environment. The core of the subject is the application of law and economics to the study of land and resources, encompassing the natural and built environments. Other disciplines (including history, geography and finance) are drawn upon and the subject includes topics such as real estate investment and law, environmental economics and law, planning policy, development and sustainability, and land and urban economic analysis. It is this inter-disciplinary analysis of the contemporary world which gives the subject its unique appeal. Full details of the structure and content of the course can be found on the University website
