The MA in Sustainable Energy is a rigorous, 40-credit program that includes in-depth study of finance, economics, international energy markets, and policy as they relate to the field of sustainable energy. It is a cohort-based program that is delivered online and is completed over 21 months in the fall or 18 months in the spring. The curriculum aligns with the expertise that energy sector employers need the most, building skills in quantitative and qualitative analysis and exploring advanced financial and economic concepts that are relevant to achieving the future of sustainable energy. Graduates will be challenged to develop their knowledge and apply what they’ve learned to solve complex, real-world problems. Our students engage in research that produces data-informed policy insights, innovations in renewable energy production and distribution, and proposals for improving regulations. With guidance and support from top thinkers in the field, you can pursue ideas for powering a carbon-free world and share your perspective with industry leaders.

In addition to online coursework, the program features two unique residency experiences, giving students the opportunity to connect in-person with their cohort and other members of the Johns Hopkins SAIS community, as well as participate in rich experiential learning opportunities. For any questions or concerns regarding the in-person residencies, connect with an admissions counselor via chat or submit the request information form.
