Energy Studies is an interdisciplinary program. It is designed to educate students in the multifaceted problems associated with energy use in our society and to pose methods for possible solutions to problems. This certificate is appropriate for students in any major who wish to develop an expertise in energy production, management and planning. The Energy Certificate program is also designed to give non-specialist an enhanced appreciation of how energy issues affect their own disciplines (e.g., economics, environmental science, marine science) and even their own immediate lives. Thus, it can provide non-specialists with an understanding of energy conservation in their homes.
