O’Neill’s MPA-MSES dual-degree Energy concentration gives you foundations and tools in the science, economics, and policy of today’s energy landscape. Core courses in energy economics and policy, and in energy systems, support advanced courses in energy policy, climate policy, energy law, human behavior and energy consumption and broader courses in environmental policy and sustainable development. You’ll also choose science courses you need to craft science-based law and policy: natural gas, renewable energy, air pollution, and climate change and its impacts. Your resulting energy toolbox will combine breadth and depth to confront issues of science, technology, economics, and policy in the rapidly expanding energy world.
Your energy training will prepare you to develop sound energy analyses and policies for agencies, think tanks, nonprofits, and industry whether you want to emphasize science or policy, or to serve as a bridge between worlds. You will be prepared to participate in problem-solving at national and international levels, or in the fast-growing and often innovative environment of state and municipal organizations.
