Energy, Environment and Society
In the Energy, Environment and Society Concentration students gain a broad understanding of climate change policy at local, national and international scales. Student learn about climate change and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions projection scenarios, such as those developed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The concentration includes coursework in social science, economics and statistical analysis, as well as science and technology, in order to prepare graduates for a research career or graduate education in climate change and long-term policy analysis and planning.
The following plan is only an example. Not every student will take courses in the same order. Students must consult with their faculty advisor each semester to decide on their actual plan of study. There are many options for completing each concentration.
