Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment

This programme focuses on 5 core areas which have risen rapidly up the public agenda: environment, climate and energy economics, modelling and policy.

Entry requirements

Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class UK Honours degree in a relevant discipline (economics, economics-plus, a science or engineering subject) or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required. A non-quantitative degree may, however, be considered provided that some aptitude, such as at A-level, has been demonstrated for quantitative analysis. These requirements may be relaxed for mature students who can demonstrate aptitude and experience, for example, in business or government.

Course modules

Core modules: environmental and resource economics; evidence, policy assessment and environmental law; modelling, methods and scenarios; political economy of energy policy; planetary economics and the political economy of energy and climate change; research concepts and methods. Options: choose any three of the following: advanced energy-environment-economy modelling; business and sustainability energy, people and behaviour; energy, technology and innovation; UK energy and environment policy and law; advanced environmental economics; econometrics for energy and the environment.

Assessment methods

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and project work. Assessment is through examination, coursework and by dissertation.
