Energy Analysis and Policy Certificate and the MPA or MIPA
The Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies and the Wisconsin Energy Institute offer a certificate in Energy Analysis and Policy that may be completed while working on a La Follette School Master of Public Affairs (MPA) or Master of International Public Affairs (MIPA) degree. The Energy Analysis and Policy (EAP) curriculum is a 13-credit masters level curriculum available through any graduate degree granting department, including the La Follette School.
The EAP curriculum prepares students for professional work with governments, utilities, consulting firms, academia, nonprofits, and other organizations concerned with energy issues.
The EAP certificate requirements are consistent with the La Follette School degree requirements. Completing the EAP requirements does not normally require additional semesters beyond the two years required to complete the La Follette program.
MPA or MIPA students complete the La Follette core course requirements and take the 13-credit required course curriculum of the EAP as electives to earn their master's degree and the EAP certificate.
Admissions and EAP Funding Information
Applications to EAP may be submitted at any time, including concurrently with one’s graduate school application. However, students are encouraged to apply before the end of their first year in graduate school to ensure timely completion of certificate requirements. Students may take courses that meet certificate requirements prior to completing their application.
To declare the certificate, students must complete the online Energy Analysis and Policy (EAP) application form.
