The Energy and Environment concentration allows students to examine energy and material issues–broadly defined, from the molecular to the territorial–across disciplines and scales, taking full advantage of courses and initiatives throughout the GSD and Harvard University. It is closely linked to the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities, providing ways to couple principles with applied research. The curriculum is diverse; options include, short workshops, half-semester module courses, regular seminars and lectures, semester-long thesis projects, and multi-year research projects.
