If the economics of food and Earth resources fascinates you, the Food and Resource Economics (FRE) program will take your
engagement to a whole new level. In FRE, you’ll critically analyze a wide range of economic and management issues in food supply chains,
including the resource and environmental impacts of food production. Upon graduation, you’ll be well set up to take your
learning into the working world, into UBC’s Master of Food and Resource Economics, or into UBC’s School of Public Policy
and Global Affairs.
Food and Resource Economics (FRE) is a major in itself. Find out more about what’s involved in a FRE degree, including
courses you might take as part of your studies and career possibilities for when you graduate.

I'm very proud to be part of Purdys. I couldn't have predicted when I was going to UBC that I would one day be President of Purdys, but I knew that whatever I was going to do, I was going to love it and be successful at it.
