What can I do with an Environmental Studies degree?
An environmental studies degree can prepare students for a variety of career options with government, corporations, non-profits, and environmental consulting firms. It also can be excellent preparation for law school or graduate studies in environmental policy, environmental science or business.
Career opportunities for experts in environmental science and policy are expected to expand rapidly as society is challenged to find more sustainable approaches to problems in the energy, water, transportation, and manufacturing sectors. Environmental scientists will be in greater demand to monitor environmental quality, to interpret the impact of human actions on ecosystems, and to develop strategies for restoring ecosystems and for planning land uses.
