The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) designed the MA in Sustainable Energy (online) for professionals who want to help shape the future of renewable energy. With a cutting-edge curriculum and world-renowned faculty, few other programs can match the depth or practical experience that the Johns Hopkins SAIS program offers.

Leveraging the expertise of the Johns Hopkins SAIS’ faculty and connections to global leaders in sustainable energy, this graduate degree program has been designed to fill key skill gaps across the energy sector — including in consulting, market research, policy, strategic advising and more.

Once enrolled, students gain access to the full breadth of resources available at Johns Hopkins SAIS, including career counseling and personalized job search assistance. Graduates also join the global alumni community of more than 230,000 Johns Hopkins University graduates. As one of the top universities for international relations, Johns Hopkins is recognized worldwide by employers, researchers as well as government and policy organizations.

In addition to online coursework, the program features two experiences at the Johns Hopkins SAIS campus in Washington DC. These experiences give students the opportunity to connect with their cohort, expert faculty and study directly within the largest hub of energy policy and legislation in the United States. The second on-campus experience consists of the MA in Sustainable Energy capstone presentation and commencement ceremony, where students will participate with the full Johns Hopkins SAIS community in Washington DC.
