Graduate Certificate in Energy Policy and Management

The energy industry is an important cornerstone of the regional economy, and a number of PSU master’s degree graduates are active in the industry. For a number of years, several PSU departments have offered graduate courses focusing on energy issues and techniques for energy analysis. The Graduate Certificate in Energy Policy and Management brings these classes together in a program designed to create a foundation of knowledge about the energy industry. The program allows flexible graduate coursework combinations so that students can customize their studies to match their goals and interests.

Faculty in five PSU graduate programs worked closely with the regional energy industry to design a graduate certificate that will meet a wide range of intellectual, community, employee, and industry needs. The programs collaborating to offer this certificate are:

  • Public Administration 
  • Urban Studies and Planning 
  • Economics
