Land Economy

Land Economy is a multidisciplinary social science course, drawing on law, economics and other disciplines to study problems relating to the built and natural environments. As such, Land Economy comprises areas such as business studies, resource management, real estate finance, development economics, property law and environmental studies. Through conducting rigorous applied research and interacting with public and private stakeholders, the Department seeks to actively contribute to solving some of the twenty-first century’s most urgent problems such as climate change, resource scarcity, unequal socio-economic development and volatile financial and real estate markets. The Department of Land Economy has one of the strongest and most diverse employment records of its graduates in the University and is renowned for its strong research base, ranking at or near the top in the most recent Research Excellence Framework assessment and subject-specific league tables such as the 2018 Times Good University Guide.
