New MSc in Energy Ethics

17 January 2023

We are thrilled to be able to announce the launch of the MSc in Energy Ethics.

The MSc in Energy Ethics will explore how we balance our energy demands with our concerns about anthropogenic climate change. How can we make sense of the complexity of our energy systems and address challenges of energy security and equity? What can we do to create better energy future for us all? 

Unlike many conventional energy degree programmes, this one is specifically designed to connect academic learning with the development of personal and professional skills and attributes. Alongside teaching delivered by experts from across the University of St Andrews, our students will enter into a direct conversation with people and organisations from the realms of policy, industry and finance. - Programme director, Dr Emilka Skrzypek. 

This course will provide students with the knowledge, skills, and ways of thinking necessary to help solve the world’s most significant and urgent energy challenges. It is the Centre for Energy Ethics’ flagship course. - Dr Mette High, Centre director

The Centre for Energy Ethics is truly interdisciplinary in its ethos, vision, and scope, bringing together researchers across the Arts, Humanities, Social and Natural Sciences to create an inspiring dynamic and inclusive research environment in which to pursue issues of energy ethics.

The course will be of particular value if you are looking to follow a career in the energy industries, energy policy, and energy finance, or if you are planning to go into further energy-related research.

Applications for the 2023/2024 academic year are open now.

If you are interested in learning more about this MSc, please join Dr Mette High for a dedicated information session on Tuesday 31st January.
