About the Energy Science and Policy Minor

Are our energy systems sustainable? If not, what could the world do differently? Energy underlies all of our modern technological, social, political, economic, and ecological systems. This minor, hosted at U-M's Program in the Environment, is designed to provide the information and analytic skills necessary to understanding the sustainable production and consumption of energy across a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
