The deadline for submitting an application is midnight November 3, 2017.

APPLICATION TO ENERGY STUDIES

The enrollment process for Energy Studies takes place during the Fall Term in coordination with the other multidisciplinary academic programs (MAPs) in Yale College. Applications are normally limited to students who are in their sophomore year at the time of application.

Students accepted into the program are expected to take APHY 100b, Energy Technology and Society, which is the gateway course for Energy Studies. This spring-term course includes both a lecture/seminar component and a “hands-on” component, in which students are encouraged to develop projects related to issues of energy management and sustainability on the Yale campus, in New Haven, or in their home communities. The course will be run in coordination with the Yale Office of Sustainability and will be team taught by members of the Energy Studies faculty advisory committee, including Dan Prober (Applied Physics), Michael Oristaglio (Geology & Geophysics), and Julie Paquette (Director of Energy Management, Yale Office of Facilities). The goal is that some of these projects will evolve into senior capstone projects for Energy Studies.
