Energy Studies

A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

Energy studies are useful for those looking to learn about how power works. Specialized energy programs may focus on a specific type of energy, such as solar or wind. Some programs may teach about sustainable energy and reducing the negative environmental impact of conventional power.
