Objectives

The Master's degree in Economics enables students to meet new skill requirements in connection with the main societal challenges and recent transformations in production systems and in public action and management methods. The aim is to respond to several forms of transition in the fields of food, ecology and agro-ecology, energy, digital technology, health and more generally concerning the evolution of public action practices.

The courses offered allow students to be supported by the three research teams of the Faculty of Economics (Acteurs, Ressources et Territoire dans le développement (ARTDev), Centre d'Économie de l'Environnement de Montpellier (CEE-M) and Montpellier Recherche en Économie (MRE).

These courses are in line with the three research axes of the University's ISITE (Montpellier University of Excellence (MUSE), namely NOURISH by promoting innovative agriculture, PROTECT by promoting an environmentally friendly society and HEALTH by improving health, knowing that the Digital Economy and Economy and Psychology courses also contribute to these areas through the potential of digital technology or the integration of the psychological dimension and the endogenous motivations of actors in favor of more proactive public policies

Public Economics and the Environment

COURSE PRESENTATION MEETING :

The meeting will take place on February 7, 2024 at 1 p.m. Amphi 319

The meeting can be followed by video :

Faced with the growing pressure of human activities on the environment, our societies are called upon to resolve difficult trade-offs. These involve explicit costs and diffuse damage, but also benefits, unequally distributed between actors and generations. Economic analysis is intended to help public, associative and private decision-making in this field. This course provides an in-depth knowledge of the economics of the environment and natural resources, as well as of public economics, i.e. the economic study of the collective choice process. These are two complementary areas of economics, on the basis of which the economist can formulate proposals that are both economically efficient and politically acceptable. The course is supported by a team of teacher-researchers and researchers specializing in these issues, brought together in the Centre d'Économie de l'Environnement de Montpellier.

Economic evaluation and adaptation to climate change

Around a central base of evaluation methods, various themes have been introduced over time, in particular to introduce the issue of consultation and policy acceptability, as well as behavioral economics to understand endogenous incentives in the field of environmental policies. In addition to the developments linked to the introduction of sustainable development and integrated and participatory policies, the recent acuteness of the challenges of climate change has generated new needs.

The M1 courses are very strongly shared with the Public Economics and Environment course as well as at the level of the mention or several courses in terms of econometrics and multivariate analysis tools. In particular, in M1, spread over the two semesters and common to the whole field, we note an application exercise aiming at empowering students in the analysis of a question and the operational mobilization of econometric tools called PIR (individual research project), successfully experimented for 5 years.

The integration of modules specific to adaptation and evaluation takes place at the level of M2 courses, with strong mutualizations with the Health Systems Economics course for evaluation courses or the EPE, Energy Economics and Ecodeva courses on environmental issues.

Energy saving

Created in 1992 by Professor Jacques Percebois, the Energy Economics program at the University of Montpellier has been training applied economists specializing in energy issues for over thirty years. It provides students with the skills they need to understand the issues and anticipate the consequences of the structural transformations facing the energy sector: decarbonization and decentralization of production methods, changes in energy market and pricing models, development of new energy uses... 

The Master's program maintains close ties with public and private players in the energy sector, who regularly take part in conferences, professional seminars and consulting projects, enabling students to apply their skills to meet the concrete needs of the sector.

Health systems economics

The Economics of Health Care Systems program is part of the Master's degree in Economics offered by the Faculty of Economics, in the Law-Economy-Management field.

The course focuses on economic issues in health systems. The aging of the population and technical progress in health care are generating major transformations in the organization of care and in the financing of health care systems. This implies a more integrated definition of patient pathways and trajectories and the emergence of new actors and tools for regulating the supply of care.

Mediterranean Farming system design for a Sustainable food-system (MIDAS)

The MIDAS course follows intensive training provided since 2010 by CIHEAM-IAMM in partnership with several Mediterranean agricultural research and teaching institutes and with the global network FSD (Farming System Design). In this framework, more than 300 international participants have been trained. These intensive courses were previously designed to train young scientists in the analysis and evaluation of the sustainability of agricultural systems through integrated approaches. The originality of the MIDAS course, which will rely on several teaching aids as well as the network of researchers mobilized in the framework of the intensive training courses, will be to evolve to address issues related to the design of agricultural systems based on food and climate change issues and to give an important place to the role of diversities (both of cropping systems, farms and actors in the field) in the improvement of the resilience of the food function of these systems in the face of climate change and market uncertainties

Territorial Agricultural Development, Environment and Modeling (DATEM)

This program responds to a request from the Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture and the Faculty of Agronomy of the Lebanese University to train engineers to deal with the new challenges that Lebanon is already facing: scarcity of resources, climate change and market instability marked by strong regional tensions. Two important components in relation to skills that have been absent until now in Lebanon: i) modeling of agricultural systems to design resilient systems in the face of climatic uncertainties and the socio-economic context, and ii) integration of environmental issues in the evaluation of the performance of agricultural systems. This course is important especially for students from the South of the Mediterranean (and more particularly in Lebanon) because it is unique in this field (multicriteria analysis by modeling, territorial agricultural development, environment). This course must respond to the new restructuring of the agricultural sector on the southern shore of the Mediterranean with the establishment of territorial extension centers, and to better match the profiles of future engineers of the Ministries of Agriculture and local authorities. >> More information

Economics - Political Science "Governance of Societies and Territories in Transition

The Economics-Political Science bi-disciplinary Master's course entitled "Governance of Societies and Territories in Transition" (GSTT) is a continuation of the Economics-Political Science bi-licence, created in 2021 within the University of Montpellier, which offers students a high-level training in these two disciplines. As an extension to this, this Master's program is open to students with a solid background in the social sciences, particularly Economics and Political Science. It will prepare students for careers in the future or in evolving sectors.

The content of the Master's degree in economics and political science has been designed to address the major issues transforming the organization of our societies and territories: energy and ecological transitions, transport and mobility, healthcare, digital technology... but also democratic or cultural transitions and institutional evolutions.

This multi-disciplinary Master's program, unique in France, brings together the University of Montpellier's economics and political science teams in a balanced way.
