What Can You Do with an Environmental Studies Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with an Environmental Studies Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with an Environmental Studies Degree?

A student who has earned a degree in environmental studies can go in many different directions. Potential employers include, but are certainly not limited to: developers, consulting firms, mining companies, non-profit organizations, engineering companies, ranches, farms, scientific foundations, and of course, the government.

Some environmental studies majors go into communications, as there is a growing need for people who can clearly communicate complicated environmental news to many different groups of people. Big companies, small businesses, and nonprofits all need spokespeople. Some of these spokespeople also become educators, not necessarily in schools, but in museums, parks, and within organizations that do go into schools.

And of course, many environmental studies students choose to go on to graduate school to further specialize.
