Land Economy

Course Overview

The Land Economy course offers a unique and intellectually stimulating programme, as well as a qualification that opens up many career opportunities. The relationship of law and economics to the sustainable management of natural and built environments forms the heart of the course, but other related topics are explored, such as economic geography and planning, public policy analysis, principles of business regulation, financial aspects of real estate, and issues of international development.

The Benefits of Land Economy at Fitzwilliam College

At Fitzwilliam, the three undergraduate year groups form a close-knit and supportive network, with a diverse range of students. The cohort is small enough for individual support, but large enough to form a good community. Our library is one of the best-stocked in Cambridge, and in addition many key texts are provided free of charge by the Cameron Society, the College’s Land Economy Society, which provides a focus for extra-curricular academic and social events within Fitz as well as field trips to the London Olympic Site, Dublin, Fez and Abu Dhabi.
