Graduate Degree in
Interdisciplinary Master of Science - Energy
The Energy concentration of the Interdisciplinary Master of Science Degree is a unique
graduate program that offers unmatched educational opportunities leveraging the university's
unique blend of expertise covering business, law, renewable energy, and oil and gas.
The curriculum is designed to provide students with the technical and practical education required of modern energy professionals. Whether you are seeking tools for career advancement, breadth of energy knowledge for entrepreneurial endeavors or the ability to move into a demanding and rewarding industry, the MSIS – Energy provides the education and skills necessary to navigate your chosen path.
The program consists of 30 credit hours. Students select three academic areas (three 3-credit hour courses in each area) from among four options that are best suited for their career goals and complete a 3-credit capstone experience. All courses are taught in the hybrid format in order to provide a learning experience that includes both online and face-to-face education taught by university professors—most with significant industry experience and all with distinguished academic careers.
Courses will be taught in clusters by academic area so that each semester students will be immersed in a particular discipline. This format allows students to fully concentrate on one area of energy without distraction while providing a valuable sequencing of information in order to provide coherent and logical delivery.
The hybrid delivery format provides the best combination of online and face-to-face delivery. This format allows students to predominantly work online and periodically meet with professors and fellow students. During the semester two weekend face-to-face sessions are conducted.
During the final academic semester, in addition to the area concentration courses, students will complete the capstone course which ties together all elements of the three areas of study pursued under the individual's degree plan.
