The Energy & Sustainability minor welcomes students from all majors. The program takes an aggressively interdisciplinary approach to the study of sustainable energy systems. It pays special attention to the crowded intersection of energy security and environmental stewardship. Here we find technical, economic, environmental, and political issues raised by the production and consumption of different fuels. These range from the traditional environmental impacts of energy use on air, water, and land to the global challenges of climate change.
