Energy and Environment

The future of sustainable energy consumption, the financial success of the energy industry, the economic potential of developing green businesses, and the health of the world’s environment are more closely intertwined than ever before. Policymakers and professionals faced with energy and environmental challenges must leverage the combined resources and talents of academic, public, private, and nonprofit organizations. SIPA's EE students and faculty in these fields have esteemed resources on which they can draw, including the Center on Global Energy Policy at SIPA and Columbia's Earth Institute, one of the world's leading research centers for integrated earth and environmental sciences and major research initiatives on energy.

Students in the Energy and Environment Concentration choose from three tracks: Global Energy Management and Policy; Environmental Policy and Management; or Energy and Resource Management.
