COURSES WITH THE “ENRG” CLASSIFICATION
There is no gateway course for the Energy Studies MAP.
A new seminar course for Energy Studies – ENRG 300, Multidisciplinary Topics in World Energy – has been approved for the Fall 2020 term. ENRG 300 is intended for juniors enrolled in Energy Studies and will provide training in the multidisciplinary study of energy in the modern world, focusing on the interplay of science, technology, policy, and economics. Knowledge of basic energy science at the level of APHY 100 (Energy Technology and Society), or any other course in Track 1, will be a pre-requisite for enrollment in ENRG 300. The course will also help students develop topics for capstone projects. Ideas for on-campus projects will be coordinated with the Yale Carbon Charge and Yale Office of Sustainability. Energy Studies scholars entering their junior year will be encouraged to take ENRG 300, but it will not be a required course to complete the program.
ENRG 400 will continue as the Senior Capstone Seminar for Energy Studies. ENRG 400 is offered in the Spring term.
