Energy Policy and Climate
The Master of Science in Energy Policy and Climate will prepare the next generation of interdisciplinary professionals to address the imposing challenges posed by climate change for human institutions and ecosystems and the potentially transformative role of sustainable energy systems. Students develop a firm grasp of climate change science and the potential impacts of climate change in this century and beyond. Moreover, they develop substantial expertise in energy law and policy making, as well as a working understanding of primary energy technologies, including both fossil fuel-based systems and renewable energy options.
