Why Study Oil

Few resources drive world events like oil. We watch oil prices and the oil market in the wake of massive crises like pandemics and look to OPEC's decisions as a gauge of market health. Countries go to war over oil access, and when oil futures are down, we begin to sweat. When the oil industry thrives, so do our stock markets and our morale.

From crude oil in Saudi Arabia to oil rigs in the Pacific, our obsession with oil is absolute. The world may be exploring alternative energies for when these nonrenewable resources eventually run out, but that doesn't stop countries like Russia and the United States from drilling full speed to cover oil demand in the meantime.

Learn about Oil

While oil continues to drive the world, it's essential to understand the process and history of its use. When production cuts drive up prices or gluts trigger price wars, you can follow the situation with a global and historical perspective.

EdX.org offers courses and certificates designed in partnership with leading institutions in the field. You'll have the chance to participate in sessions with students worldwide and complete requirements on your own time. These courses are designed to open doors and smooth your transition, whether career or hobby.

You'll understand how oil producers manage and implement oil production and how output cuts affect this production.
