APPLYING FOR GRADUATE STUDY
You may apply electronically or by mail to the master’s and Ph.D. programs supported by CEEP. Please see below for information on “Applying Online” and “Applying by Mail.”
Applying to the Program
CEEP supports two graduate programs in the energy and environmental policy field: a Master of Energy and Environmental Policy (MEEP); and a Ph.D. in Energy and Environmental Policy (Ph.D./ENEP). Both programs are administered by CEEP.
The 36-credit Master of Energy and Environmental Policy (<spanMEEP) has a 21 credit core curriculum and 15 elective credits. The Ph.D. in Energy and Environmental Policy (Ph.D./ENEP) has three components: a 21 credit core curriculum, the development of a research area and the dissertation proposal involving at least 24 credit hours; and the writing of the dissertation.
Both degrees offer concentrations in:
Political Economy of Energy and Environment
Disasters and Public Policy
The ENEP degrees are directly administered by CEEP with the support of five colleges at the University: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Arts and Science, Business and Economics, Engineering (where CEEP is housed), Earth, Ocean and Environment. The degrees are intended for individuals who wish to focus their graduate programs on interdisciplinary study of the field of energy and environmental policy. A three-credit science, engineering and public policy proficiency is required in the ENEP degrees.
The deadline for applications to the ENEP programs is February 15. A completed admission application and all credentials must be submitted by the program deadline to guarantee consideration for financial aid.
Reducing demand of some bioenergy crops can reduce GHG emissions: WRI ReportA new WRI report observes that some bioenergy crops such as corn-based ethanol are inefficient in supporting global energy demand and can increase carbon emissions.
Water: An additional reason for rapid deployment of sustainable energy technologiesWe don’t always know the worth of water until the well runs dry or unless we live in drought-stricken parts of the world.
Solar power competitive in 42 of the 50 largest U.S. citiesUrban homeowners can find it cheaper to invest in a fully financed solar PV system than to purchase electricity from the utilities in 42 of 50 as America’s largest cities.
Electric motorcycles and carbon emissionsOil companies use many GHG emitting processes in addition electrical power to drill, extract, refine, transport and pump that fuel before it ever ends up in a conventional car’s tank.
