Thanks for the interesting blog [ed. note: blush]! I am evaluating Environmental Economics Masters programs. Do you have any idea where I might find school rankings for this subdiscipline?
An MS in environmental economics? That's a tough question since most economics masters degrees are more general and if there is a focus it is on technique (i.e., econometrics). The best bet might be to swallow your pride* and apply to one of the aggie departments, especially if they have some contorted name like "agricultural, environmental and development economics," hook up with an environmental type and write a thesis on the environmental topic of your choice.
*Note: I applied to the Agricultural Economics and Economics departments at the same SEC school. I was admitted to both but only received an assistantship from one department. I've been a bitter, lonely person ever since.
