Energy & Earth Resources Graduate Program

The challenges related to energy and earth resources are central to the welfare and prosperity of society, are complex and rapidly changing and their study is inherently multidisciplinary.  The Energy and Earth Resources graduate program prepares future leaders for the opportunities and challenges related to the earth’s resources and environment.  It accomplishes this objective by developing multidisciplinary skills and understanding to enable integrated resource solutions.  Students pursue studies in the geosciences, engineering, management, finance, economics, law and policy.  Courses are taught and research is led by faculty from the Jackson School of Geosciences, the Cockrell School of Engineering, the McCombs School of Business, the LBJ School of Public Affairs and the School of Law.  Graduates typically work in the private sector and government organizations, which face a growing need for professionals that can plan, evaluate, and manage complex resource projects, commonly international in scope, which often include partners with interdisciplinary professional backgrounds. EER offers the Master of Arts and the Master of Science in Energy and Earth Resources (MAEER and MSEER, respectively), as well as dual degrees with the LBJ School of Public Affairs (MPAFF and MGPS)  and the Red McCombs School of Business (MBA). The program is designed to be completed in two years for the MAEER and MSEER and three years for the MPAFF, MGPS, and MBA.
